What's 32kms equate to in miles? I'm a little rusty on conversions. I did the plugs on my 2001 w/ 2.7L at around 65K miles and they still looked pretty good. They easily could have gone longer. The service interval is 100K miles. In any event, they are easy to change. I did not see any improvement in mileage though. Stayed the same.

I suggest at least a good cleaning with some carb cleaner and a nail file at 60k. I just replaced mine, at 59k. Most of them were somewhat sooty, especially #1. #1 also had oil on the threads; the rest did not. None of them had the proper .050" gap from normal wear.

Using a nail file on platinum tipped plugs is not a good idea. Carb cleaner probably wouldn't hurt.
