    Judging by your recent posts then Id guess ur car is still stock albeit with only the derestrict mod done - therefore I dont really see any major benefit in using uprated plugs.

    More of a placebo if ya ask me - ie u whack in some "uprated" plugs and u convince ur self the engines performing better - when a set of new OE ones do just the same job.

    If u do want uprated ones then u can get a set of Bosch super-4s for about £20 - ie not that much more than original ones.

    Although the car is pretty standard at the moment, i do have plans to modify it, Although not sure about what to do yet? So if you have any ideas please feel free to share?

    Stick with the standard vauxhall twin electrode plugs, no benefit really on a non turbo engine, have tried the super 4's in mine with no benefit at all, also there have been a few cases of the super 4's dropping one or more of the electrodes off, not good, hence why mine went back to the standard vx ones.
