    Get your pollen filter changed and check all drains in the scuttle panel. I bet the drains are blocked and your pollen filter soaked. Classic water ingress

    Nope, not the same, one sparks to ignite, the other heats fuel, no spark produced.

    The hint is in the names, one sparks the other one glows, I'll let you decide which does which

    Spark plugs are from petrol (Si) spark ignition as they are constantly sparking I. Order with your cylinders where as glow plugs are from diesels (co) compressed ignition these only work when you start the car, as diesel needs to be stupidly warm to combust on the cylinders, can't remember the figures bit I have them all in my notes somewhere lol
