    Since I intend to keep the car as long as I can, I think I am sold for an OEM filter. :D Thanks for directing me to the site that sells 10 oil filters for 39.90 - free shipping. The oil plug gasket is 0.88 cents, so I may order ten of those as well.

    After x-mas, I'll make a short phone call to the parts dept. at our local Toyota dealer shop and find out how much an oil filter cost.

    Merry Christmas to all.

    I use the OEM filters and drain plug gasket on all my cars. I buy the filters 6 at a time along with the washers and usually get a pretty good price that way. Then no worries re quality, fit, etc.

    You are lucky to have a dealership parts departments for that low price. My local dealership sells (1) Toyota filter for $6.75 :rolleyes:. I'd rather get them online or settle for a Purolator filter that is more superior than a FRAM.
