Default WRX spark plugs wanted.

Just got off the phone with my local parts store and priced the standard plugs for the WRX. At $17 each it seems kinda steep. I know they are a super dee duper rare metal plug. But is there another option? I have always liked the NGK plugs and would like to stay with them but I just after some information if anyone has done their plugs yet. I have 13K on my WRX and I am wanting to see just what the plugs look like. I know they can go "ONE BILLION" miles without changing but I still want to see what they look like and the condition they are in.
Thanks,
Greg D.

The OEM plugs are NGK Platinum. They are typically >$10 a pop.
If you're pulling the plugs out, why not replace them with NGK Iridium (last TWO BILLION miles? )

But seriously, Saab use NGK plats in all their turbo models for the reason that the regular plugs aren't up to it. I assume Subaru has found the same thing.

Why not try Subaruparts.com and see what their price is? Sometimes the "OEM boxed" plugs are cheaper. Sounds crazy, I know.

Thanks Glenn, I'll check Subaru parts for the plugs. I am trying to find the Iridium plugs but so far none are listed for the WRX. But of course the WRX is to new and 2002 plug catalogs are not out yet. So hopefully someone has already researched this and can give me a quick FYI. I also posted this request for info on the Service/Maint forum. I am really interested in what the plugs look like after 13k miles. One poster I read long ago did his plugs and found the gap in #3 cylinder to be way off. He replaced his plugs with the Iridium I think but I cannot find his thread anywhere.
TTFN,
greg

STi sells the NGK iridum plugs for the WRX.

I am sure someone in the US must be importing them.
