Do you think I should change it and do you think it's a risky DIY job (maybe I'll just buy the part and bring to mechanic (how much you think the service/labor would be?)). Thanks.
I changed my plugs and wires after about 30-35k last time. When I got the old plugs out they didn't look bad at all. They were V-powers as well. The timing belt and water pump should be done around 100k so you should look into that. Most places should to the spark plugs and wires as part of that service.
