No, it's not worth it.

You are paying more for the TRD name, than you are the filter.

Oh, and at TRDUSA.com, they are only $50.

EDIT:

And I assume that you are talking about the air filters that fit in the stock box, not a CAI or SRI, because TRD does not make those to my knowledge.

if you pay 100$ for a filter than ur crazy.
why do you want this filter? Performance or just cz its TRD?
if you want Performance, you gotta get a CAI or Short Ram. if you want noise, then remove ur butterfly valve.

TRD is a rebadged K&N happywink

sometimes you can find someone here selling a used one.. for about $25 buy that instead then save up for an Intake thumbsup
