New plugs advice

135i has 55k on it and I'm thinking about trading in a few months for a new 3.

It's in for service now and they want to sell me new plugs. According to the posts I see here, it sounds like it's overdue. But, two things:

The dealer wants $560!!! for this. Is this a complete rip off? Or am I just not used to having may wallet vacuumed this way?

Is it worth it when I'm only keeping the car for a handful of months?

Plugs should have been done at 45K under the service program. $560 sounds a bit much even at the dealership level. Labor time is right around 2 hours and plugs should be about $23.15 each at the dealership.
