    service parts what to use?

    Right going to start servicing my van myself as fed up with paying ridiculous labour rates for an easy job, use to service my pickup so what sort of quality parts do you suggest?

    My van is a 1.6 8v automatic so:

    SPARK PLUGS
    OIL FILTER
    OIL
    AIR FILTER

    The van has done 46000 miles with full history up til now, do i need to change a fuel filter as that's the only bit i have never done?

    So basically what products to people suggest i use or should i just go to vauxhall for the parts?
