OP's running a 328. From what I've heard, that motor is much less sensitive to the plugs (brand/type) than the N54/N55.

I guess you could re-torque it to specs. If it's already at spec don't torque it any further.

Any other effects? Like slow crank when starting the engine? Dim lights with the engine off? Seat heaters not going all the way to full hot?

No love for the the darling of handling aficionados everywhere: Mazda 3? Or even the Golf GTI?
The first will be reliable; the second, probably not as much.
