For oil filters I go with OEM from the local dealer for about $8 + tax. I get the 5 quart jug from Wal-mart as they're usually the cheapest around $23-$27 depending on brand. Do a little research here, a couple of members have had their oil analyzed and made some recommendations. I've been using Pennzoil 0W20 synthetic lately. I also just started using a Fumoto oil drain valve: IT IS LIFE-CHANGING :surprise: Never have I had such an easy and clean way to change oil on any car. It's a bit pricey around $25 iirc, but for the ease of use and cleanliness, it is worth it.Where do you guys buy your supplies for stuff like an oil change?
Filters, filter wrench, air filters, cabin air filters? Is there a place online that is cheaper than from the dealership. Prefer to find OEM parts if possible.

I think u can just use ebay ones. That's what I'm planning on getting. I found this one which seems to be the cheapest out there:my mechanic charges $15 for the oil change, which is nothing, I bring my filter and oil. It would nice to do the oil change myself but I don't have the place or the tools to do this, let alone, the balls to get under the car with jack stands. I know many are very secure, but all it takes is one wrong move, is game over.
I just buy parts from walmart when they have sales
buying the filter from the dealer is actually cheaper than all these third sellers on ebay, amazon, etc
I have a question, is it necessary to use the oem cabin oil filter or can I get away with using an aftermarket one? Is the oem any better than the aftermarket ones or just the name?
