    Default Spark plugs 2.0T?

    Looking to change my plugs on a 06 2.0T - had a quick search and i'm reading a few people changing to NGK iridium pfr6t-10g are these the ones to buy?

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    I know Nige was running those and I think he had problems with them from memory, he switched to the Saab Biofuel plugs recommended by Neo Brothers and got instant results as I recall from his thread.

    There's some confusion going on: NGK PFR6T-10G are the correct, standard/factory fit plugs and work very well, but they're not iridium and they're not the ones Nige had trouble with. The ones he didn't like were Denso iridium ones, which is why he swapped to the Neo Bros-supplied biofuel ones.

    See, this is what i thought as the more i read this avo the more it conflicted the material..

    Nige, what are the biofuel ones your running and are they only for heavily tuned cars like yours?
