Question Copper or platinum?

Since I saw some people mentioned that the spark plugs on the RS are copper, I'd like to know that our RS is come with copper or platinum spark plugs?

From the 1998 and 2001 brouchure, it shows that the car is come with platinum tipped spark plugs that have a service interval for 100000 km

Anyone knows?

A platinum tipped plug is going to look very different from a full platinum plug. I believe the champions are just platinum tipped, while the NGK are a full platinum electrode.
