    Hey all. Ive got my 2010 taco DC and just did the first oil change at 1000 miles ( force of habit). I noticed the oil filter from the factory is made in japan and looks to be a way better filter than the OEM replacements i got from the dealership. The dealer filters are made in Thailand vs the japanese made factory filter. The factory filter had a red oil seal, a beefier looking construction and the inner construction looked better( i pulled it apart) than previous toyota oil filters i have looked into in the past. ANYWAY - just looking for comments and yes i did search and the only thread related is the very last one on the search and did not contain much info. thanks all.

    I never understood the appeal of carbon fiber, but I can't argue with Coupe's engine cover...that thing is the cleanest one on here. I'm NOT going to paint the oil filter every time I change it...just don't have that kind of motivation.

    I noticed the same thing when doing the first oil change on my '09. The part # on the filter was different as well.

    None currently, but I would like a better sounding exhaust and perhaps a cold air pack and some color coded step bars
    Very nice looking, what sort of paint did you use? Spray bomb or gun?
