    Didn't even check mine lol. fitted bosch super 4's and its been perfect for the last 3000 or so miles. I had NGK's before and it feels like it pulls better with the bosch ones. but then it could be my imagination.

    You shouldnt need to worry on modern plugs anyway, the idea of the super 4's is that like lightning it takes the shortes route to earth.

    As above mate, with the Bosch 4s you dont need to set the plug gap. Even with Twin Electrode NGK you cannot set the gap.

    Yeah the bosch part number is FR91X. I wouldn't fit the NGK's i have heard horror stories of them eating through pistons.
    I think its because cathode tip is recessed and it chooses to earth to the pistion because its a more direct path to earth. Picture ok its just a theory but i would rather not test to see if its true or not.

    The bosch plugs are not like that so are meant to be more safe.
    and as i have said before the car feels like it runs better with the bosch plugs anyway.
