    Default How often do you change the spark plugs???

    Just went down to local VX dealer for a service kit and was told the plugs were £10.72 EACH for my 2.0 ltr turbo

    Last time i brought plugs they were only about £2.50 each, so whats so special about them then??

    Also would you go for full synthetic or semi oil?

    It's a Z20NET, there aren't any Z20LET's in Vectras.

    The spark plugs are about £20 (for all four) from dealers if you buy them on Trade Club.

    She said it was a 20 NET or something like that, paper oil filter cartridge too, cars done 24K so should be ok for now then,

    cars running and starting fine tbh, i only really like putting genuine stuff when it comes to the engine,tbh, not that fussed about price just thought it was steep compared to others.

    That's weird, I've been buying them on TC for 3 years now...ring another dealer and ask them what their TC price is. When I said £20, I'm pretty sure that includes VAT, BTW.
