    Standard Vx Tri Electrodes.

    Obviously all depends on which engine variant but a lot of ppl on here (and i mean ppl who know their stuff) will say Vauxhall plugs.

    Personally I use Bosch Super4 but Im certainly not in the above category.

    Do a search and make ur own mind up based on the info gathered.

    just took a set of bosch super 4 outof my GSi because of judder. Put in some Vx QUAD electrode plugs which were recommded by the technician as they know about the uneven idle problems and these plugs were brought out to cure it....certainly have...more power too

    my std vx plugs had been in my 2.2 for 35k miles and it was starting to judder ever so slightly under gentle acceleration so i splashed out and got the iridium plugs (can you belive they are more expensive for the 2.2 than they are for the 2.0t??)
    anyways, its cured the slightly lumpy engine and it now idles perfecly, the needle doesnt fluctuate at all! result!
    Fitted options: Folding mirrors, cruise control, dual tone horn, remap.
    Next: Bluetooth

    Simon - Bosch Super 4 have always been QUAD electrode, perhaps yours simply needed replacing?

    my mistake they were bosch supers but dual electrode. the Vx quad are performing really well. even the wife can feel the difference. best £15 i've spent in a while.
