Oil changes, spark plugs...?

I just purchased an 08 335i with 47K miles on it. Reading through the manual the other day I saw that spark plugs are to be changed every 45K miles in the 335 series. I enjoy doing my own work on cars but am unsure how much BMW tries to prevent this.

Would changing spark plugs be as straight forward as most vehicles? If so, which plugs do I buy and how much $ am I looking at?

And oil changes...I've read some posts and seen some things about intervals. Right now my car is telling me I don't need an oil change till 11/2014! Is this true...? Can I change it myself anyway right now just to make sure the oil is fresh and reset the counter?

Thanks in advance guys, look forward to gaining more knowledge through these forums and yourselves!!
