Spark plugs +/- ignition leads +/- etc?
Hi apologies I don't know which heading to ask under - got a general maintenance question:

2001 bugeye STI wagon JDM - 100% stock
60,000 miles (110,000ks) SERVICE - what should I do? My mechanic is passive and doesn't know what to advice apart from a "tune up" - when I ask what he meant by tune up he can't really explain so I have to tell him what I want done -

-changed transmission oil, diff oils, fuel filter, oil + filter, and some general repairs (hub cracked eg). previously had cambelt changed 50,000 miles

SO what else should I change?

Am told by the mechanic that to change spark plugs it's a lot of work to get to it - so while he gets to it is there anything else I should change? (the car engine is stuttering at when cold - that's spark plugs?)

Should I change ignition leads or is that not needed?

And I guess all the fluids and air filter huh?
Anything else?

Waterpump and thermostat for the REALLY ADD people. Radiator fluid flush?

bearings maybe?

Stuttering could be coilpacks if not the plugs
