Agreed, the plus aren't made by toyota, they are made by NGK and Denso...whats the difference in buying the same plug from an auto parts store vs. the dealership....oh wait I know...THE SAME PLUG costs much more at the dealership.
I like to use mostly OEM parts when I work on vehicles however I am not going to get ass-raped by a dealership when I can get THE SAME PART somewhere else for much cheaper. Not to mention our parts department at my local dealer closes at 6pm which means I have to leave work early to get there before they close if I need a part.
