That’s not plug related. Get ya map checked bro

Thing is before I changed plugs it was fine? Literally done like 8k since mapping and all was fine


What plugs did you put in out of interest?  I'd pull them out, check they didn't accidentally get knocked (closing the gap up), put them back in, push the coils down firmly and check the connectors click fully home etc.  It does seem to be related to the plug job, so double check it all.

Got bosch plugs but ngk-r are what came out of it, may be related but a few weeks back my eml started flashing at me which is usually a misfire issue, i pushed the coil packs in as far as I could and the light went off and thought changing the sparks would fix this? Maybe coils are on the way out? Although sure previous owner said they had only just been done

That's your answer then.  The Bosch plugs are known to cause problems and is why VW ditched them in favour of NGKs some years back  :happy2:

Use either of these and it should solve your problem.

OEM plugs, £9 each - https://www.ngk.com/product.aspx?zpid=9940

Iridiums, £9 each - https://www.ngk.com/product.aspx?zpid=9352

If you suspect the coils, get another set of reds from AKS tuning or Awesome as they're cheap.

Continuing the spark plug theme... I changed mine for some new OEM ones. I gave the others a good life for 35,000 miles and yes they are worn but still functional and pretty clean. I am still running a standard car  :smiley: but with Stage 1 on the horizon its time to prep. Thought you might like to see what old ones looked like. PFR7S8EG 1675

Standard 2007 Black Eddy  #1000 - VCDS Hex+Can (Novice coder). H&R springs, newish Bilstein B4's. Gen 3 Steering rack, Helix organic. The car is *always* work in progress fixing and upgrading things.

Brake pads done, got 2 bust sockets so couldn't get the carriers off to do the discs too...

Porsche and Forge caps on the engine bay, smooth front grill and debadge the whole car.

Drivers side shock leaking so new suspension needs to be sorted. Do I go AP or save money and go Stance?

Currently with self adhesive backed Velcro. Looking at magnets behind the grill as an option though...

Looking good.  The left most plug looks spot on, but the other 3 show signs of oil burning (white crusty deposits).  What's your consumption like?  Not that it matters really as TFSIs are just oil burners full stop  :grin:
