How was your plugs? Really need to be changed? I am close to 7500 miles...

Do you use factory NGK plugs or aftermarket Denso plugs like some others?

I though the scheduled plug change was too soon.After I pulled them I saw why changing is recommended.The original iridium plugs appear they may be somewhat worn compared to the new ones. You can' really adjust the gap and I would hate to strain the electrical system.I'm happy with performance so I stayed with NGK.My guess from looking at the original plugs is that it probably wouldn't be long before mpg and performance would drop off.Have a greaat day.
