Default new battery, won't start help

I just replaced orignal battery in 2003 mini, now it won't start. Tried resetting ECU, nothing I have checked spark plugs, not wet, spark, no spark, connecting & reconecting battery, nothing . Any Body who can help? I miss driving my mini. My mini (van) just ain't the same, and besides I've only made 2 payments.
