NGK Iridium IX..worth it?

Okay seriously...I am about to change my spark plugs and I have heard that NGK Iridium Spark PLugs work wonders. To my experience, I've had spark plugs changed before and have never noticed a difference/improvement on previous vehicles...but then again it could have been cheap spark plugs. Nothing special.

I am just wondering that if I install these premium Iridium plugs, will I notice a difference in performance. I have a 95 325is Automatic and am looking to increase power, performance, consumption, etc. Are these plugs right for me? Has anyone else had incredible results immediately felt after using them?

On a 6 cylinder it's worth it. It made little noticeable difference to my 4 cylinder I think.

You could get 2-3% more torque and horsepower if you are lucky, plus a slightly smoother ride.

I hope it makes a difference. My car runs good now, but I am interested in upping the horsepower and overall performance. Plus I'm hoping that these high-quality spark plugs will solve an issue I am having...

your not going to gain any kind of noticeable power increases, but it will be a little smoother

+1 dont be expecting ground breaking quarter mile times just from plugs. they WILL help everything run smoother. Idle will be calm and smooth, as well as acceleration.

to answer the post subject: yes
