    Shipped by Amazon is the scary part. Rockauto is probably your best bet.

    Yea I was hoping the whole “Sold By Amazon” and “Shipped by Amazon” would give some credibility.
    Might go with Rock Auto as their only $10 more per coil… but if I’m spending $55 per coil at RockAuto, is there any reason why I shouldn’t spend $75 per coil on one of the Toyota parts sites?

    I obviously am worried about the authenticity of the coils I’m buying, or I wouldn’t be posting this. My local dealer just charged me twice what some online dealers I’m looking at do. ($148 for a single coil)
    And now that I’m pretty close to 200K miles I’d rather just replace them all than deal with random misfires when I’m trying to leave the grocery store.

    just looking for opinions. For reference it’s a 2007 2UZFE V8.

    Oh you've got a 4.7. That's cool. I keep two denso coils in my truck at all times. I'm at about 185k on what I believe to be originals. I'm gonna roll with them until at least 2 or 3 go out. Mine came from RA and they are known to sort their parts well. The denso coils are the same ones as the Toyota coils. In fact they literally grind the Toyota logo off the rockauto denso coils. Maybe I can find a pic.

    That’s wild. I thought it’d be cheaper to not put the Toyota logo and part number on there.

    edit: I’m not trying to question the legitimacy of RockAuto, as I’ve ordered several things from there- but how is that website different? Legitimately asking.

    Ordering from Rockauto will greatly increase your chance of getting legit densos. Maybe cheaper.
    RA is a company with a honest reputation to uphold. Amazon is just a flea market where anyone can sell anything.

    I'll tag @shifty` here but basically Amazon receives the "same" part from various suppliers. They don't really look at the stock as long as the part number matches they throw them all in the same box. You may get a part from a legitimate supplier or you may get the fake part. Rockauto only gets parts from reputable sources so really hard to get counterfeit parts.
