Why? Well i feel in my personal opinion and using various cars, oem filter works best for Indian conditions. In a few of my cars i have actually noticed drop in performance with so called performance filters.
Now i just buy a set and keep a spare at home, when its too dirty just replace.In a diesel a clean air filter really helps.
What I generally do is to change the air filter to a new paper one at the set interval and in between, once or even twice, get the air filter cleaned with compressed air.

The same with my AC cabin air filter.
