    Dumped exhaust, 35 % factory tint, kobalt slim line toolbox, afe pro dry, toyota all weather mats, fog lights soon.
    2009 toyota camry Se with 11,000 miles on it.

    My mother just got back from the dealer after an oil change and the dealer mentioned to her it would be a good idea to get a 15,000 mile maintenance package which includes changing the cabin air filter, servicing the pistons, etc.

    My question to you guys is if you think this is nessacery for $206.00

    Thanks

    15K service here in OC at my dealer http://www.tustintoyota.com/specials/service.htm
    is around $160 and the cabin filter is 60ish but you can get one and doit yourself for a third of that.
    I have no FRICKING idea what servicing the pistons is and no car with 15k on it should need that.
    Mt 2009 Camry SE is just about ready for the 30K I will have to tell the service and parts director who is a freind of mine about that one.:rolleyes:

    Only thing "servicing the pistons" means to me is valve adjustment, and that shit shouldn't be remotely necessary until around 100k on engines that need it and most modern engines DON'T need it.
