    Spark Plugs

    Think I am just going to replace these while I am in there doing the coil pack.
    I believe I used the NGKs on my other ZHPs.

    These are the ones you want for our car, correct?

    Seem to be a bit cheaper on Amazon:

    How can you tell aside from the NGK box?

    The store that is selling them has great reviews...

    Amazon seller does have some negative reviews on spark plugs. I, too, received some bad NGKs from eBay last year, after never having problems with many eBay purchases over the past 20 years. If you buy from FCP you'll never pay for another set of plugs. Do you want to do the job twice if the Amazon plugs are junk?

    I understand, I know all about FCP I probably pay for their utilities with how much I spend there annually.
    I would check the plugs before installing, saw some video on YouTube about how to spot fake ones.

    May just go the FCP route, but they are expensive on a few things ($15 is a large price gap on these). Doubt I will have the car another 100K and it doesn't transfer to next owner either way, but I hear ya.

    Edit: Yeah, just going to bite the bullet and go with FCP, they always come through.

    I got a set of NGK BKR6EQUP spark plugs from FCP Euro when I recently changed out my plugs on my ZHP. I have used these plugs in my BMWs and have been happy with using them.

    Yes, my plugs looked original. Put these NGKs in Wednesday and the car seems to have a lot more giddy up.
