Default Dealer oil change cost in Canada too high?

Just had my dealer in Ottawa do a 16k on my '08 IS250. I asked for , and received only the oil change. Invoice came to $99....FOR AN OIL CHANGE!!!
Is this in line with other dealers in Canada?

I would assume for that price they used synthetic. Whenever I change my oil on my SC400 I spend over $50 by the time I buy Mobil 1 and a Toyota filter, So $100 done for you seems fairly reasonable.

I pay around $90 for oil change by my stealership in Toronto. I guess it's normal for Lexus to charge us this rate.

No so bad considering my friend got a oil change, tire rotation and a check up (fluids, tensions, ect.) for get this $650 on his VW rabit. Oil chage for his Rabit alone is $120+.

That's why when I bought my car I stayed away from buying a euro.

That sounds about right. I was quoted $200 when I asked about the IS' maintenance schedule.
