Use ramps to raise the car or make sure you have jacks stands placed correctly. Review lift points in the owner's manual or find them online. Google is a good resource.
Use synthetic oil of the recommended weight, 5w40 I think. Do NOT overfill.
Use a Mann oil filter or NAPA Big Kahuna. Easier to get at the oil filter if you lift the coolant reservoir off and out of the way. No need to drain it just lift and rotate so you can reach down and get at the filter.
I use iridium single electrode plugs and they seem to last. Your friendly auto parts store will have a guide for the correct plugs. Don't skimp on them!
