    Spark plugs air filters etc

    Due for my 60K service, bringing it to an independant mechanic. I don't have any mods, but I thought I could at least put in a different air filter. Any recommendations of one I could buy at a parts store? Also, I was told the original spark plugs in the WRX don't have to be changed until 100,000 miles but I wanted to put in new ones--any recommendations on those?
    I also plan on a brake fluid and coolant flush, and a new fuel filter. Anything else I should be doing or looking at at 60K? Thanks in advance guys

    Keep it OEM if nothing is was wrong the first 60k miles......you might pay more but you know they will atleast get you that far.

    I second the suggestion to put in an OEM type air filter if you don't have any mods in the car and it hasn't given you any problems. New plugs actually go in at 60K IIRC, and I would stick with the OEM spec on those as well, NGK iridium plugs. The recommendation to change the tranny and differential fluid isn't a bad idea, might want to put synthetic in there. Check your brakes, rotate your tires, and give the whole car a good once over.

    Ok thanks for the suggestions. One question, which may be stupid---I was told to buy wires with spark plugs, does anybody do that?

    The wrx doesnt have wires coil's on top of plugs. Coils are typicaly replaced when they go bad not at a maitance interval.
