Well, I just completed my 200k spark plug change. the coils were stuck on the plugs quite hard and I think I broke all my fingers removing them but they came out. since my $2 plugs lasted 100k without any issues and were giving ~23.5mpg I decided to replace them with the same NGK G-Power Platinum Alloy Spark plugs (BKR6EGP)
they were about $2.70 each this time.
There is no oil in the spark plug holes or on the plugs, great news for a car with 195k miles!

I also used two different spark plug sockets. one with a rubber insert for taking out the plugs and one without a rubber insert to put on the plugs. this eliminated the step using the tape because the socket would not get stuck after torquing down the spark plug.
