I did it it's about 2hrs. It's easy until you get to #5 & #10 those coils are stuck pretty good. There's some good tricks to get those 2 out. I would save those 2 until the end. Amazon had the best prices on the plugs and I own a garage.

Thanks, I ended up doing them and it wasn't that bad, dealer wanted $900 plus tax, previous dealer broke 1 clip on the coil and just left it there for the next person to deal with. next time i'll replace it. I hate taking my car to indi shops because they butcher things. I can do it and take my time.
I am not a mechanic but can do a lot on my own. cheers.
