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?

Thanks

bearings maybe?

Stuttering could be coilpacks if not the plugs
