Im a toyota master tech and the red o-ring comes only from the factory. Its for us to see if the oil filter has been changed. This way if someone brings a car in with a blown motor and they want it to be covered under warranty we can see if its been serviced.

The scary thing is i have serviced cars with 20k and they have the red ring filter:crazyeyes:crazyeyes:no:

Anyways you might be able to find them but thats what they are for and to my knowledge you cant buy them from toyota.

Oh yeah and the filters are identical just the o ring is a different color. Dont worry your getting the same quality filter.

I bought 12 of them from McGeorge Toyota in Richmond, but now their website doesn't show them anymore. You may want to call and see if they have them.
