I think only dealers will have them. Do yourself a favor and order them in bulk online. They usually have a ten pack for cheap. Look in the deals section on here. Someone posted a link to a site with a 10 pack for $39. I ordered some myself.

If I were you, I'd be looking for the 90915-20004 filters for my truck, it's the filter that Toyota uses as the factory installed filter for the V6 and V8 engines, and before they used it on the 2JZGTE and 1JZGTE motors. IIRC, they still use this style of filter for Japan manufactured models, albeit in smaller sizes for smaller engines like the 1st gen xb, iq, Prius, Corolla, and Tacoma 4-cyl.

What's so special about these filters is that instead of the conventional paper pleated media they use a special foam density/solid/depth media filter. It's a sponge media that's porous enough to allow oil to passthrough, but fine enough to capture all the little bits of metal floating around your engine. It does such a great job at taking out contaminants before your first oil change that toyota give you a conventional paper-pleated 90915-YZZD3 filter at your first oil change 5,000 miles and on. At least this is what I like to believe, that our engines don't need fancy media filters after 5,000 miles, not the fact that the 90915-20004 retails for 4x times the cost of a 90915-YZZD3, and that toyota service centers are using the YZZD3 because it's cheaper to to the service center.

Most dealerships in the USA do not sell this filter anymore. Those dealerships, that do sell these filters, have very limited quantites or at a highly marked up price. For a dealership to stock the filter, they are generally required by the Denso Distributor to purchase these in quantities of ~300 at a time. Most dealerships don't want to commit that amount of money for a filter that costs any amount more than the "accepted" replacement filter.

Here are a couple of places that you can still find it:

http://l-tunedparts.com/product/?id=2217
http://www.ebay.com/itm/OEM-Toyota-L...-/321056496685



This photo shows the actual solid depth filter media. As you can see it's fibrous like the normal paper media filter, but there's just so much more of it that it acts like a sponge at the same time. Flow rate is amazing and this works great for engines that require high oil flow like the 1JZ-GTE



This filter is the aftermath of an oil change at ~600 miles from a new 2nd get 4-cyl Tacoma.

At any rate, I'm super paranoid so I bought a crap ton of these when they were still easily availble and I insist on the dealership using my filters and putting in synthetic oil during the change.
