Our GTO's have no servicable fuel filter. The fuel filtration device is a fixed part of the fuel pump. Many newer cars and trucks are going this route. Personally, I'd ather have one I can change every so often.

If you have the time you can do most of that stuff yourself. That the stuff I do in my garage every six months. Now if you have auto tranny than yes I would take it in to have it flushed if needed, changing fluid is no problem. Where did you get that sheet from because I looked up all the recommended stuff to check on the GTO and some of that is not listed. Do you have the owners manual I would go by that, thats what I recommend.
The dealer wanted to do some mileage required service on my car after seeing the price of $400+ I told them no thanks. That is the stuff that I can do and I know it's done, I keep records and recepts of everything done to that car.

Having the lack of a fuel filter I put fuel system cleaner in my tank every once in awhile.

When I get my car's oil changed at the dealership they do most of the above during that service. I bring my own oil and filter so for 14.99 all the fluids are topped, chassis lubed, visual on brakes and everything else is done. It is all documented on the paper I get. For 600 clams they are charging a lot for mostly looking

I have no idea what a BG road kit is

Personally I would have nothing major done until it has to be done i.e. changing the rear diff fluid, throttle body, air induction service etc. I have seen some good quality air cleaners for 9.99 or so.

I won't get all that done until I have to.

Not sure what the Royal Blue gear oil is for that but any parts house that deals with Royal Purple products should be able to direct you to the correct oil. Maybe call the dealer and ask what viscosity they use and find the same in Royal Purple? When my diff oil was changed out by the dealer they put in a modifier to help with any kind of noise coming from back there. It's supposed to help keep the rear quiet. You may want to install the same when you change out yours. Just my 2 cents.
