I usually use Castrol Edge 5w30, it's around €55-60 for 4 litres, worst about it is that it needs 4.4 so you have to buy another litre which sells for the guts of €20. I change it every 10k miles or once a year, whichever is sooner. I normally get the Oil filter from the local main dealer, costs around €8 or €9 which is reasonable enough for a genuine part. A cheaper option is to use Castrol Magnatec 5w30, it's about €35 for 4 litres and will do the job also.

Nice to see another Irish T-Sport driver, I've spotted just three here since I got mine 2 years ago.

i don't have a t-sport i got the 2.0 diesel but i do Oil, filter, air filter, Oil change, and cabin filter every 6-7K with toyota 5w-30 genuine Oil which as far as i know is made by Castrol.

i do fuel filter every 30K and whatever else needs doing I use genuine parts get my local jap specialist to do the work.

i think 10K for t-sport is a bit much personally, depending on how hard you drive it but with those high free revving engines like t-sport and vtec engines it's better to do more frequent Oil changes imo.

My Toyota Dealer advised to use these "Denso Iridium" he recons the Toyotas only like Denso plugs.

I just serviced my one today. Toyota Oil filter, Mobil 1 5w30 and I put in a K & N panel filter. When I did the plugs I went for Toyota denso from the dealer
