A lot cheaper than if you go to Lexus haha. I would just DIY its pretty simple and the parts cost less than $100.

The labor for spark plugs will be free at a lexus dealership if you have not done the spring recall.

Otherwise its pretty pricey at a dealership. It is not a hard DIY.

There's a DIY thread on the forums, but basically a Lexus dealership will cost several hours of labor on top of the parts. Quotes for spark plug change from dealerships nearby me ranged from $500-700. My advice is to buy the plugs from Sewell for $13 each (a 50% savings from what the dealer will charge) and then either DIY or have the spark plug service done at the same time as 1) the spring recall, 2) the fuel pressure sensor recall, or 3) the cam gear TSIB.

Mine were 256$ and they were a little cheaper because I believe they cut an hour of labor off since they were doing the cam gear tsb and said some parts were off. Since i was at 25k only, Lexus corporate reimbursed me.

You can sign up at https://secure.drivers.lexus.com/lexusdrivers/home and it will show you all the current re-calls and you can also view any service history associate with the vehicle (assuming it was done by lexus). Great resource.

My dealership did it at the same time as the cam gear TSIB and they only charged me a half hour's labor for the plugs at $57.

Fuel pressure sensor was from back in Jan/ Feb of 2011 and the spring recall was I believe from around summer 2010.

Don't forget the brake fluid also has to be changed at 60k If you prefer a dealership to do your service, have a Toyota dealership do the work for you. Otherwise, find an independent Toyota/Lexus specialist shop or buy the 60K service kit off of Sewell and DIY, or have any reputable shop perform the labor for you

Weird, the 60,000 mile check list includes "replace differential oil" but then towards the bottom of the list it says "inspect rear differential oil". Which one is it? Inspect or replace?

I don't recall ever seeing replace diff oil appear in any 2IS scheduled service in the US... (I think the Canadian manual did, but it wouldn't be the first thing it called for that nobody else did)
