When to change ignition coils

I'm about to do the 60k mile spark plug change and am wondering if there's any value — aside from satisfying my OCD tendencies — to change out the ignition coils at the same time. I don't seem to have any performance issues but the darn ignition service kit (plugs + coils) at FCP Euro keeps jumping out at me. Thoughts / recommendations?

If youre at 60k and going through FCP euro, just get them now and you can change them out every time after for free using their lifetime warranty. that's what I did when I changed my plugs at 45k or so. Usually people keep them if there are no misfires, but if youre already in there, just change them out now if its never been done.

Wondering if I should do the same. 51k miles, stock tune and will be doing OEM plugs.
