Spark plugs

I'm going to change my sparks and just want to check the best to get.

These ok? NGK. IFR7G-11KS (7746) Is 33 for 4 a good price?

Ta.

It's about average price-wise. The plugs themselves are fine.

Not really... NGK Iridium are perfectly fine. Those are the upper-end ones too (they make a cheaper version). Might as well go for the best.

Is it worth getting the iridium 1X with a heat setting of 7 instead? Seen them for the same price. Read they are for heavily modded cars though?!

The ones you linked to in your first post are the higher-end ones sold by Tegiwa for the K-series engine. They will be absolutely fine.

Yeah, the Halfords professional range is well worth a look. Not cheap though.

Just bought one from halfords myself this week for this job. Click and collect has 15% off on this item till Tuesday. Don't get confused with it being called laser magnetic spark plug remover 10mm. It's really 16mm lol.

Ha, haven't done mine yet, been getting sticky tint residue off the back screen and organising my new milltek for fitting. Did you torque set the new plugs?

Would these fit in the 1.8 8th gen? These are alot cheaper than Cox motorparts.
