    Iridium vs Platinum spark plugs?!

    Had a chat with a fellow car enthusiasts and we were discussing which spark plug is better or the best available in the market? Iridium or the Platinum? Another friend of mine told me it depends on the car, if it's for japanese car then it must be Iridium and if it's for european cars then it must be Platinum. While another one said that the regular stock spark plugs will do coz it's just a waste of money to buy expensive spark plugs. I really do not have an idea whom to believe..

    Your comments on these items please..

    If your running a turbo / highly tuned engine then iridium or platinum are recommended, for your normal run of the mill engine ( even with basic mods done ) stick with the standard recommended plugs, you won't gain by fitting expensive one's so save your pennies for something else

    thanks! i have a non turbo engine. i always thought that those types of spark plugs will make your engine run better milage or something.

    i must have been attracted to the beautiful and colorful brochures, catalogue's claiming this and that effect if you use such a spark plug. lol!

    tks,
