Is this overpriced, or is this standard?
Oil change sounds close to right, although it's DIY for a lot less.
Plugs take 30 minutes tops to change, cost $25 tops; I haven't tackled the fuel filter yet, but I'd bet it's not too hard.
You could do oil changes and spark plugs yourself with the proper tools and patience. Personally, I think that's a bit high for plugs and fuel filter, but I'd bet that's about the going rate for a synthetic oil change at a dealer. Platinum+4's cost $38.10, but I would not recommend them for the 525. My last oil change cost me $27.55 including oil, filter, and shipping charges for the filter. Of course, my labor is free!
