any cheaper spark plugs for the 1.8 GD ?
« October 24, 2019, 18:03:08 »
MY GD is a 2013 with 121 000 kms I need to change my spark plugs (as well as coolant flush and brake fluid inspection and a bunch of other things)

but the plugs are honestly really expensive. The OEM replacement are about 32$ each retail as my dad's got a garage I can get them for 26$

I know the oem plugs are iridium X , could i replace them with platinum ones (7$ each so 28$ for all 4) without issues ?

I dont mind less mileage out of them the car will get used a lot less shortly!

If the OEM ones are iridium then I wound not go any lower. I changed to a NGK iridium set on my 2.0 FD for AUD$79 last month

Dad owning a garage should know better and be insisting on iridium plugs, anything less will foul the engine :disapp:
