I don't think the fuel filter needs changing on the IS200, in the UK at least. I would recommend a K&N filter for the air filter, it lasts a lot longer, is more free-breathing and may help mpg slightly.

Engine oil is an area where I think people will have their own favourites. I'm soon going to get my oil changed and will be putting 5W30 fully synthetic into it. You can use semi-synth too.

Opie Oils do some good deals on oils and give a LOC discount. They also have some special offers for this weekend only, see the Buy/Sell forum and this thread.

i use 5 30 fully synthetic in my lex mate yip oem filters will be fine but i would recomend the k&n panel filter lasts a life time and can improve mpg.just make sure you use toyota coolant when changing the water pump though.

ps welcome and if you get stuck just give us a shout and someone or all of us will be glad to help!
