I thought this is the Toyota 3309/whatever special fluid/etc, and therefore should be blue or something. Is it ever pink? I guess I mean to ask does anyone (any automaker OE, aftermarket, synth etc) color this fluid pink instead?

Which fluid is the best choice? Seems some fluids like castrol multi import and valvoline dextron merc state they are Toyota t-iv compatible.

If the fluid stated it is rated to a qualification level then there is very little else you can do but trust it at its word.
I have used Mobil1 MV in my 5-speed ATX Mazda but use Honda fluid in the Odyssey.
I don't know why, but maybe if it is a fluid specific for the requirement, I am more likely to use it. If it is a type of fluid that is "compatible" with many different manufacturers and types I am dubious. I am less likely to trust "it works for everything" claims.

The genuine Toyota is $10 more a case (12) than the Castrol so I would spring for the OEM personally.

Good luck
