FYI- if you have a gs300- your engine and tranny is the same engine and tranny from a non-aspirated supra. this being said, you can easily go to a toyota dealership to have your 60k service done (sounds like that's what you're doing from what you listed).

I did the same thing to my gs3 back in October. Total cost: 900 something bucks.

It ain't cheap but that's what the lexus dealership was going to charge me w/o the timing belt replacement. To their credit though, they were going to flush my tranny. The tranny fluid was just replaced at the toyota dealership.

i may go get my tranny flushed soon.

Here's what I know from my local Lexus and Toyota dealership. The prices are for RX300.

Oil change: $30 at Toyota, $92 at Lexus (with tire rotation and wash.)

30K service: $375 at Toyota, $499 at Lexus (with free loaner.)

The last time I changed the oil at a lexus dealer it was $50 with a wash. The toyota dealer was $25 with the wash. What really got me angry is that the oil filter had the same part number on both receipts. Guess What, Toyota is my new mechanic. The service guy told me a few of their mechanics use to work a Lexus.
