$10/qt for synthetic oil - not bad for dealer markup.Jim Itin said:It's not uncommon to be charged $20 - 30 for a filter ("genuine Lotus") plus $10/qt of oil (5 to 6 qts). I think you get stuck for at least two hrs of labor ($80/hr or more), so there you go. Personally, I was not thrilled to be paying Lotus to have them do an ECU dump for their own edification, but you have no choice.
Very good point. I don't know either, but now that you mention it, they must have some sort of warranty agreement with Toyota. I would be curious to see what it is.Jim Itin said:T..., but
I wonder if one of the reasons for the ECU record is so
that they can get reimbursed from Toyota for engine
It's a requirement for validation of your warranty. I guess to make sure we don't brow beat the cars during the breakin period.epinfren said:I would imagine that a Toyota motor is pretty easy to oil change yourself.
Is the ECU dump a required thing and, if so, how often does it need to be done?
