Not worth it. The 1.3 has the exact same issue. I'm about to go out and grind off the heads to remove the indentation which causes the noise and then set the gaps correctly afterwards. That's pretty much all you can do unless you go to a parts centre and buy them new (looking at around £70 if you do that though).
