Default How much would it be to get new spark plugs put in?

So I recently bought a K&N air filter and it's kinda helping my MPG's but I can literally watch my tank drop as I drive around town. How much would it be to take my Max in to get new spark plugs?

Do it yourself, it isn't that hard.

Dealers by me charge $465 and 405, these are the quoted prices online.

The plugs cost around $60 IIRC at the parts store.
The front 3 take maybe 10 minutes to replace. The back 3 take a little longer. If you have any mechanical skills and reading skills, you can do the back 3.

Check this thread How to Replace and Install New Spark Plugs

Edit: I forgot, you might need upper intake manifold gasket.

Yes it is! You hear people all the time saying it's easy, yes the front are but the 3 in the back are a royal PITA so much you have to remove that's why the dealership charges so much.

It isn't that hard. Basic mechanical skills and you can do it. I rather do it myself and save over $300 than pay a dealer to do it. You just need basic tools too, nothing special.
