M103 Cap and Rotor toast at 30k miles

Hi All,

Car is a '92 300TE with 120k miles. After 30k miles, my Cap and Rotor are nasty. Big fuzzy black carbon tracks on all the points and the rotor is crusty and black. I will be replacing soon along with plugs and wires -- car is running smmothly, but a bit sluggish.

Is this abnormally early? Does anyone know what could cause this? Unfortunately, car does get it's fair share of short trips. The only thing I could think of off the top of my head is a weak ground somewhere -- or possibly a failing coil?
