I recently changed my plugs (59,800), and believe me worth while. I used NGK Iridium plugs. Very simple to do, just disconnect the coil and then pull out your plugs. I noticed the difference immediately, smother idle, and faster pickup.

No torque wrench. German torque. Although the maint. book will have a number. Don't use Gorilla torque...negative results.

Are those pre-gapped? On a scale from 1-10 -- What was the difference you noticed in pick-up gains?

transmission drain is simple. Best way drop the pan, replace the gasket (get it from autopartswarehouse), refill with fluid, I used Amsoil as recommended here.
