Yes, you should replace the spark plugs every 30k miles and no you don't need to pay the dealer to do it. You can buy the plugs online, NGK #310235 silkar8c6ds, for under $20 each if you shop around (ebay, scuderiacarparts.com, etc) and do the basic work yourself in under 30 minutes. The air filters and pollen filter are drop in parts, pollen filter is part #670005021 which can be bought for around $20 as well. Their fuel cleaner is probably BK-44, again only $20. Pour one in the tank every year and be done. Oil changes are also very easy and quick if you have an extractor which only costs around $80.
If you're going to own the car outside of any prepaid maintenance, doing just these basic maintenance items will save you thousands over your ownership. Also consider buying BMC air filters. They're reusable, so you just clean then every year and put them back in. Keep your OE filters so when you clean the BMC filters you can let them dry overnight and still be able to drive your car with your OE air filters in temporarily.
