I still say the condition of those plugs are most likely not the fault of the plugs. New plugs will look the same in a week.

If you're going to be an obedient owner and change your plugs early, isn't it actually 32K in the manual, not 30k? That should give you an extra week or so.

8 of those plugs are solely for emissions. Changing at 30K? We sure have some obedient owners here!

The TSB I just had done on my 2012 was done for free. The fix doesn't get much easier than that.
