Spark plug technology has come a long ways and the modern plugs last a lot longer than in the past. However, they DO wear down and can impact your engine's efficiency. The factory might recommend a 100,000 mile interval for replacements but most MINI owners replace them much sooner. Since a worn spark plug can affect your fuel efficiency, we recommend you inspect them regularly and replace when they start to show signs of wear.
