Default Changing Hepa Filter

Our 06 Accord has reached slightly over 29,200 miles probably be 29,300 by the time it gets to the dealership. Anyway I decided to go ahead and call about having the 30k mile service done. When I asked what it included I was told an oil change, tire rotation, brake fluid change, transmission fluid change, air filter change, hepa filter change, and a checkover. When they finished telling me that they told me it was $380. I decided to ask how much just getting the transmission fluid and brake fluid changed would be and they told me $150. I told them to make an appointment for that.

I have Royal Purple oil in it I've been running in it and changing every 3k miles, I have checked the air filter but it wasn't bad at all I might replace it anyway though, and I have been doing tire rotations myself now. It doesn't need an oil change nor does it need the tire rotation. The only thing I haven't checked is the hepa filter. Anyone know where it is and how to check it? Is it an expensive item? Can I find one at Advance or somewhere or should I get one from the dealer?

I thought about doing the transmission fluid myself and the brake fluid but I hate doing the brake fluid and I have never done transmission fluid on a manual vehicle where you have a fill plug. It can't be that hard but I decided I'd pay the $150 atleast until it was out of warranty.

Isn't the hepa filter just a fancy term for cabin air filter.

Just make sure you put it in with the flow arrows in the right direction, and make sure the tray snaps in all the way.
