Just had mine changed last week (2003 V6, 276K miles). They were the originals, and the weeping and dripping had gotten worse over the last 6 weeks or so.
Glad I had it done (too bloody cold to do it myself!); spark plug wells were full of oil. Now, about a week later, the drips and weeps are all but gone, and I think I dodged a looming DIC failure.
Further to Anders point - just making sure the PCV check valve is working, the hoses are in good shape and the hole in the nipple is clear (no need to enlarge) makes a huge difference in the oil weeps. I took care of that a few years back, along with a new oil filler cap o-ring and was able to slow down / stop some drips and leaks.
