For plugs, NGK platinums, available from your local dealership. I don't think anyone would dispute the fact that NGK reigns supreme for spark plugs. And platinums will last a lot longer than coppers.

For wires, I hear the stock wires are as good as any. I know that Magnecor sells their KV85 comp wires for the Impreza, but I really doubt you need anything beyond the stock wires. Plus, those wires are expensive! Magnecors are something over $100/set last I checked. And the stock ones aren't cheap, either - the dealership quoted me something like $65 for the set!

Befor someone says it rudely try a search, you can ge a wealth of info. There is a topic in this forum right now on plugs. That said get some NGK BKR6E-11 plugs. the 00 and 01 came with crap Champion plugs. Wires are not a big concern unless yours are worne but you can get some mangacore wires.

I must admit, I have been converted with Denso plugs. After a month or so of break in I am getting 300 miles per tank with aggresive street driving. The only other mods I have are an Amsoil replacement filter.

Wires, Magnecore are good.

Nothing against the NGK, I have run NGK in all my other toys...

I am using the Denso Iridiums on my turbo RS. These ar the same plugs as HKS I believe and they are cheaper. I think I paid 60 for the set though, so not that cheap. I cant remember the part number, sorry.

Better yet, NGK PFR-5B11's. These are the platinum plugs with the proper heat range for our non-turbo application (unless, of course, you have a turbo, in which case, you would be better off with colder plugs, like 6 or maybe even 7).
