I am going to be servicing my T4 in the near future, are there any reccomendations on service parts.

I am going to do the whole lot, HT leeds, all filters, plugs etc...
Do any makes of parts work well and others dont(ie Bosch plugs instead of NGK ones, particular brand of HT Leads, that type of thing..)
Also is it worth bunging a K&N Panel filter in it or are they a waste of time??
Also what grade of oil should i put in it???

The car has done 168K..

Any advice greatly recieved.

Most people reccommend the Volvo OEM spark plugs, the panel filter will be a good mod, as for the oil I just went off what the manual said (sorry can't remember what it was) I ended up using national for the oil change as they use decent oil and as it take 5.2 litres it was cheaper than DIY....
