I called the parts department to get price on the plugs and the guy told me that they are 100k plugs and I should be fine. He didn't even try to sell me the plugs saying stuff like its good for 100k by recommends 45k. He just says I don't need them.

So is there a reason to change them at 5K? Or do the people on the board just change them at 45k for the same reason why some people change their oil every 5k instead of the bmw recommended 15k/1yr?
spark plug replacement...

135i = 45K miles
128i = 100K miles

On a tuned 135i I would change the plugs every ~20 to 25K miles. On a 128i thats driven hard/spiritedly I would change them ~45K miles.
