Thanks for all the tips,
Unfortunately I just replaced my plugs with the Bosch Platinum plugs instead of the NGKs'. How bad are the platinum plugs?
Also, I couldn't get the little metal bits that screw onto the top of the plugs out of the plug wires. Is there a trick to getting these out? For now, I unscrewed the new bits and stick the wires back on. The care seems to be driving well so far, but will this be bad for it in the long run? If I need a new wire set, what should I be paying for them. The ones on BavAuto are $180.
thanks for any help.
