The manual clearly shows 7.2K service interval and I asked my dealer for clarification and they provided a print out from their system showing 10K interval. About 5 hours later I get a mass email that Toyota pushed out about service intervals and it’s showing 10K as well. Which one is it?

I don't own a Supra but if I did, I would also do 5,000 mile oil change intervals.

Every 5k is a lot easier to remember by simply glancing at the odometer compared to a odd interval like 7,200 miles.

10k in my opinion is too long especially for a car that will be driven spiritedly often.

It’s a turbocharged car, they like fresh oil.
Keep in mind turbos cook oil faster, especially if you are enjoying the car on the backroads.

a little out of pocket for a piece of mind is worth it in my own opinion!

I had a sports car before that coked the turbo. It was replaced under warranty but I changed to every 5,000 with synthetic oil and didn't have a problem again.
