    Bosch Super 4 Spark Plug.

    I've just ordered a set of four of these for £13 on ebay for my 1.6 8v, has anyone had any of history of these. I have looked at a few reviews on the internet and for some people they work perfectly but for others they are terrible. Any help please guys?

    not the best plug ive ever used... i ran them in my 8v when i had it, but for the price its gotta be worth a punt.

    personally id have opted for regular GM09 plugs from Vxl but as i said, for the price you cant really complain.

    Did you notice any difference in performance or smoothness of the engine? I have NGK T.Spark in at the min so im just wondering if I will notice a difference.

    Iv put these in my Z18XE when i did a service. Cant complain about them,though i got mine from Halfords on trade. Getting more miles from a tank,but that could be due to the service more than anything.

    Just fitted these in the last couple of hours, engine gives a little burp when I take my foot off from a high rev but it sounds nice. Working well on my 1.6 8v.

    Yea it's a hard call, I'm not sure if they are any better now having drove around a little I'm tempted to put some NGK's back in. But my dad has just thrown those out so I will stick with the Bosch.
