Wow that is very expensive.
I just changed the in-cabin filter at home (takes about 10 minutes). The air filter I changed last year but this year installed the CAI. And the oil changes are also changed at home. My dealership doesn't even bother asking me to bring in the car for maintenance. I was there not too long ago for a recall issue, and they never bothered me. They are very friendly, but they know I'm not interested in paying $50 for just a basic oil change. Or another $75 for the in-cabin filter to be changed. It's all things I can do at home, on my free time, and at a much cheaper cost. I just save all my receipts and document the mileage.

Also, if you look at the required maintenance in the log book, some of the things are absurd. Who needs the wipers replaced? When they need to be replaced I'll replace them. I'm not going to replace them at the mileage the book tells me just because it says I do.
