Apart from filtering out the fine dust and pollen - the pollen filter actually traps a lot of the soot kicked out by diesels - although primarliy not designed to do so you would be surprised how black they become. Also prevents dirt build up in the system and if dirt gathers on the air-con evaporator it will work less efficiently and also start to pong big time if the pollen and fungal spores start to germinate. Fungus just loves dark warm, moist dark speaces to grow. If you were a mushroom you'd love it in there

For the sake of a tenner or so its hardly worth doing without it
