You are wasting your money changing the plugs. Your car,and every car produced today has platinum plugs and they are good for 100,000 + miles! If you are experiencing a slight miss in the engine go to your local auto parts store and buy Lucas fuel injector cleaner. Buy 2 bottles and follow the directions on the amount of gas to use with the bottle in 2 tanks of gas. Remember to ad it first and then the gas on top of it to get a good mix.Also, buy some dry gas(HEET is good an inexpensive) as you could have some water in the tank and this stuff makes water burn with the gas

The spark plugs in your Honda do not need any service until 110,000 miles it says so right in your owners manual save money and worry about something else cause you have a way to go on those plugs....

The Accord has no cap or wires to change since it has coil packs on top of the plugs. Plugs can be had at any auto store for less than $5 each. That is all you need. I have a 2001 Civic and only changed the plugs at 50,000 miles because I put in Bosch +4's to see if the mileage would increase. I now get about 33MPG all around. I was getting about 30 before the plug job.

You dont need to change anything for a while, but if you keep your car go to any parts sotre and get NGK plugs. They are the absolute best you can get for a Honda. The only thing you shoud need to do for you car is a Transmission flush and Coolant flush at 50,000 miles. Unless of course you have a manual.
