Hi, my name is***** basic tune-up, including new spark plugs and air filter and throttle body cleaning, should run approximately 2 - 2.5 hours labor plus parts. The OEM spark plugs should run approximately $20 each and the air filter is approximately $30. Dealership pricing will be much higher. I'd expect to pay approximately $450 for a good tune-up from a reputable independent Jaguar specialist.
