there was just a post about this in the past month, i'd do a search and read through that thread. i can't recall the details but i think someone was quoted in the $500 range to replace plugs. not a ton of information/experience yet on the 6 cylinders. most are still under warranty and they're still relatively new so alot of us that work on subaru's haven't seen them yet.

On the plugs, having a dealer do it...

My advice is to contact local dealers in your area, talk to a service writer, or better yet an actual mechanic or the service manager. Ask them to descibe (and justify their charges) to what is involved to perform some of these services. You'll get a better idea if you want to tackle it yourself. And if you do, share your experience with the rest of us...
