Iridiums are the best, V-Grooves seconds to that

$20 a plug for the Platinum ones tho. Well worth the money considering they arent meant to be changed for 80-100,000km

I have the NGK Iridium's too, and they seem really good, but for the 6cy, just use the XR6 spec NGK R's. For $3 a plug they are the best value.l

how much are iridiums?

im not sure whether it is my plugs/leads or what not.. sometimes if im at the lights and i begin to go my car will miss and cough & splutter, its only been doing it for the past few days, might be time for new plugs or leads, or could it just be the petrol im running at the moment?

rob.

PS; XR8fella, your car sounds tough. (thats all I can say).

I got Iridiums for $17.50 each.

Changing to the XR6 plugs made the idle on my EA better, and they don't foul up easily. They are great for LPG as well.
