Re: Spark Plugs

Thanks for the replies guys. Think I will just stick with OEM Bosch plugs. Even if I tune the car I'm not gonna be constantly using 400+bhp etc.
Also Bosch are cheaper so happy days!

Re: Spark Plugs

Yeah so the NGK 97506 are a step cooler. Would you recommend going for them with their current gap at 0.8mm or stick with OE Bosch gapped at 0.8mm?

Re: Spark Plugs

Cool thanks Marco, that's helped. Searched that model and came across 6 on ebay for £45, What do you mean by cooler grade? Any recommendations?
Thanks!
Edit - would you say keep the plugs stock for now, then if i ever tune it, upgrade the plugs at that time?

Re: Do you adjust driving style in hot weather?

Definitely enjoy driving a lot more! Like Marco says no need to nanny the car as much. This is the time of year when the car can be used to its potential more safely, unlike in the wet and cold.
