Platinum and iridium are for longevity. So, if you want to change your plugs every 100,000 miles, go for an iridium or platinum plug. If not, just use a regular NGK

"platinum" plugs are not full platinum.... they have platinum tips which make them last longer. If you want the performance benefits of platinum, then you have to spend ~$100/plug for full platinum plugs..

I run regular NGK copper plugs, they are cheap, and seem to work just fine. I change them every 30,000 miles, but they are cheap, so it isn't a big deal.

Get rid of those bosch +4's.

Your car will run better on plain old copper NGK's.

I ran the Iridiums in my 2.5 and they worked well, they are spendy though...
Coppers (NGK) are the best for the $.

That's when my car had a 2.5 that ran...

Soon it'll be a 3.3...
