Spark Plugs

I'm currently servicing the touring and have so far had the oil changed. What plugs do other E30ers use? Seen some Bosch ones on ebay that I'm considering, although would like some NGKs. Do you find there's much of a difference between brands, or is it just sales hype?

Unless your car has some extreme engine mods, stay away from the "platinum" and clame can shoot you to the moon what not spark plugs, just get the regular bosch copper oem or NGK equivalent.

it is not worth the $$$ you will shell out for the superior labeled plugs, its just a marketing scam from the companies, just my 2 cents.

I like the NKG, plus they are stock plugs, its all I have used.

Cheers Nick, it's a toss up between NGK, Bosch or Champion, which according to my manual, were standard on my touring.
