    Stock for now.. maybe
    I personally wouldn't do it but I'm weird. Maybe you can find a better price from a different dealer online with low or free shipping?

    I got burnt by fake Ebay plugs. Took a few hundred miles and got misfire codes on random cylinders. Went to Rock Auto and got real Denso plugs and cleared the codes and bingo no more problems. Got my money back from my CC, Ebay was no help and the seller fought it all the way.

    Just go to a local parts store and buy them even if they are a few bucks more. Way less pita and less hassle. You can put them in this afternoon.

    trying to keep stock
    I got 6 from the dealer for 2.88 plus tax each

    16071231841308035727199937063837.jpg

    Maybe call around and just get the real ones to avoid any issues.



    Good luck

    Update this was for a 2008 6 cylinder..so please double check the part number as it may be different.

    Wow! It looks like they have gotten a lot better lol I read a "how to spot fakes" from denso a few years back and there were a lot of flags to identify them. Looks like counterfeiters have continued to improved their knockoffs

    Be careful! I generally assume that anything automotive sold on Amazon or eBay is knockoff unless it's being sold by a Toyota dealer. It's not always a fake, but it unfortunately often is.

    Those are regular copper spark plugs.

    The 4 cylinder takes Iridium Spark plugs which cost quite a bit more.


    Stay away from ebay for plugs. Not worth the effort and if it seems to good to be true then it's fake.

    Do not buy, even from a #1 rated seller. They are fake.

    Another vote for Rock Auto. The parts seem to get here faster than Amazon orders.
