Default What's a reasonable price for 100k tune up ?

My trusted local dealer who has ALWAYS priced services fairly for my 2010 Insight just quoted me a price of 1475.00 for plugs and wires and labor for a 100 k tune up.
Is this the going rate for a dealer service for a "tune up" ?

Uhhh.... The G2 has 8 spark plugs, not indexed. Why replace 8 good coils? Or maybe only 4. And other good parts? We need to know what Honda thinks we should do. And probably skip half of it.

Folks the OP has a 2010 Insight. Four cylinders, 8 expensive plugs. The quoted price still seems high though.
