Best spark plugs for remap?
« on: August 14, 2019, 03:13:19 PM »
Hi, having my car oil changed to Millers Nano and want spark plugs doing at the same time in readiness for an Rtech remap.
Can anyone point me in the right direction to a good set or just stick to OEM ?
Cheers

I can see they are about £40. Is your car remapped?

I've got NGK BKR7EIX in mine and R8 coil packs.

Not remapped (until 14th October)

Didn't notice any difference, to running or performance.

Just avoid buying from unknown sellers on eBay - there are so many fakes around

BKR7EIX is the most recommended though, have run them in mine the last 6 years
