"But does it affect performance for casual riding?" - no.

"Will the century be more enjoyable with a new high quality BB like a UN55?" - compared to a worn out cup and cone, for sure. As opposed to the cheaper and ubiquitous UN-26, no but ... the bigger question is why NOT the UN55? What is it, $5 more? $10? I'm more pecuniary than most regarding bike components, but for something that's going to last for years and unimaginable number of miles, does it really matter that it costs a little more?
