    Hi Folks,

    I know there is a strong cult following down-under for the 100 series. I'm heading down there in a few weeks. Are there any parts that I should purchase while there, that can't be had cheaply or easily state-side? I don't plan on shipping back a fuel tank, or anything quite that big, but if the price is right, I just might. Anything smaller and niche to Australia?

    Thanks for your advice!

    Wow that’s awesome!

    Good call.

    Wish I had the money to redo my leather seats to some factory cloth!

    Take some OEM oil filters there. In Australia an OEM oil filter is Aus $22.50, while here is it US$4. I ship filters to my friend from here.. it is still a cheaper option for him. Same goes with fuel filter.

    Gasoline. The filter for Prado with 5VZFE uses cruiser oil filter. Finding OEM diesel filter is tough as there are no Diesel toyota's here. I am looking for a diesel engine oil filter for a hilux LN 106 and its about $34 from a toyota dealer!
