    really depends what your trying to achieve or why your doing it.

    Most folk would accompany an oil change with an oil filter change.

    I suppose you would benefit from changing the plugs if the haven't been done for 15k miles+

    i wouldn't worry to much about your air filter

    oil change would not involve changing your spark plugs.

    I would change:
    Filter
    Sump plug copper O ring
    Oil

    If your after everything on that list, then go to your local vauxhall dealer for the bits.

    No byron i just meant if they hadn't been done for 15k + you may benefit from doing it, especially if you have your head under the hood anyway.
