Im almost at 60K and will be doing maintenance.
will be replacing:
1. Motor oil (regular maintenance)(Royal Purple 5W-30 $7.49 quart at pepboys)
2. Trany fluid (honda?)
3. Will bleed brakes to get old fluid out
4. Radiator coolant(honda brand? with Royal Purple's Purple Ice additive)
5. maybe change spark plugs?
6. what else?

i want to switch to synthetic motor oil. What is good synthetic to use (brand and specs)
Trany fluid :i heard that Honda has same formula as GM synchromesh? so should i just get Honda one?
brake fluid? any thats recommended by owner manual or just get Honda one?
Radiator coolant: Honda one or something else?

No, you got it all, although the stock plugs are good for 100K and so is the stock coolant. The new Honda MT is like syncromesh and unless you are having braking issues I really would not even replace the fluid until 100K.

use 10w30 for royal purple, because royal purple is thinner than other oils you want to use double the weight.

At the 60k mark as well. I took the car to the dealer for the 60k service checkup and they said its $375. I have am extended warranty and they claim such a checkup is not covered. Anyone run into this problem? Do i need to have them check parts that could be due for service individually? Seems ridiculous to pay for servicing when you pay for a warranty.

First time with a manual car (v6), anything to lookout for at 60k????
