Take it to the dealer. You only have to change them at 60K miles (100K if
you use new plugs), so just bite the bullet. If you try it yourself and
screw it up, you are out some very big dollars.

=====
From what I've read, one either uses great dexterity and different
length extensions working slowly and carefully or remove and replace
the intake manifold to ease access.
Again, after the fact, but this is one reason I purchased the four
cylinder - simpler do it yourself maintenance and repair.

No least hard way. Throw a cover over the engine to protect your ribs.
Use whatever extensions, universals needed to access plugs. BTDT, but
forget which precisely. It's a bitch but persistence will prevail.
Expect to bleed a bit. BTDT.

Remove the air intake plenum chamber. This will involve one new gasket
and a few other minor nuts and bolts. Take lots of photos to remind
yourself of what goes where.

Alternatively you can just manage it with a universal joint in your
socket spanner extension and lying on top of the engine and cursing
hard. I found it helped to remove the bolt from the centre rear engine
mount and jack up the rear of the engine about an inch, NO MORE.

Cheers
