I took the plugs out and looked at them further, when i wiped the gas and oil away i saw the words BOSCH PLATINUM +4. I am royally pissed. These plugs have cost me over 600 dollars in the past (I had my 6er towed to a dealer, only to have them change the plugs and drive the car off the lot) The plugs are wet, and oily, and all fucked up. Just a warning, DO NOT PUT THESE PLUGS IN YOUR CAR! USE THE OEM PLUGS, there ISNT a preformance diffrence that is that noticable!

OK.. back to the reason why you have oil and fuel on your coil and spark plug....
Probably because part... of your valve cover gasket and or O-rings... that go around your bolts that hold on your valve cover.. have become old.. and oil has seeped through.... not a good thing... I'd look into ... atleast taking the cover off... and inspecting the gasket... that it probably the problem. GOOD LUCK
