    both oil filter and plugs will be worth doing but depends on how many miles since they were last changed,
    if they were done 1k ago then not alot of point etc?

    will allow the engine to spark better.

    more powerful spark more powerful engine. usually increases fuel eco as well..

    i done a full service on mine..

    spark plugs
    oil filter
    oil
    fuel filter
    air filter (replaced with performance filter)

    car runs a hell of a lot smoother and is better on fuel accelerates alot cleaner with alot less hesitation.. but mine desporatly needed all of the above as i was still running the stock spark plugs from 2003.

    there is a how to for the fuel filter here
    and the air filter is easy, just a few push off clips and a jubely clip

    edit, theres a how to for derestricting the airbox here might as well give that ago when you do the air filter, also shows you how to get to the filter if you didn't already know
