mine doesn't look anything like the generic so i am assuming it's genuine...and the genuine TRD oil caps have the TRD on the cap already...just wondering if anyone else had this problem...it looks kinda goofy... spineyes

what I dont understand is that they all want ATLEAST $9 for shipping... thats about the same cost as shipping an Intake or strut bar.

I know for a fact that these are less than $4 to ship - AS 2nd DAY MAIL wave

Cuz it will make the product look cheaper. So they ad more on the shipping. Otherwise the seller would not make any profit from his items.

No grin. Once you remove the sticker if will not stick to the surface very good.

Get someone to buy you a couple in the states, and then have them ship it to you. Some guy tried to charge me $83US shipping and handling for a product that cost $65US. I told him to stick his head up his ass and look for change. What an idiot.
