Yes nice stuff, but only if Toyota here in T&T was not so expensive. I think if u add up all d parts from Toyota in T&T to build a vehicle, it might b about 3 times as much at which they sell a vehicle.
4 me:
Air Filter = K&N
Oil Filter = original, from Ebay cost me 1/3 of the price as Toyota in hand
Brake = Wagner for now, but I trying 2 get some Ceramic next
Spark Plugs = Denso Iridium

This counterfeit business has really reached significant levels and is more than spark plugs.
In fact today a lot of parts places in T&T are unwittingly marketing counterfeit products as original equipment in brand name packages and markings.
Vehicle owners are really between 'a rock and a hard place' and really have to exercise extreme care when purchasing supplies.
What fuels the industry is the customers desire for attractive pricing of original equipment.Personally,I find the biggest issue has to do with filters,bushings and fluids.
The thing about this mess is that the unfortunate customer will not observe any major 'failure in the short term but in the medium to long term all hell breaks loose.
I always like to say to people ---if something too good to be true it normally aint.
Know what you are buying and from whom with warranties.
Note you cannot prove engine failure from use of poor quality oil filters (which can and do shorten engine life).

First I use www.toyodiy.com and enter the VIN number. and just google the part numbers.
http://www.toyotapartszone.com/ this site comes up or ebay is reliable as well to locate.
The items that come up are most of the times cross reference from Toyota vehicle in the sates.
