    Get the better branded ones - cheap ones don't last long and test them before putting them in - a while back I bought a set of Bosch plugs and one of them wasn't working when I bought it.
    Vauxhall Trade Club are doing them for £8.26 + vat part number 93180295 about £10 + if not in the club

    How would you test them?

    You could check the resistance using a Multimeter - not sure what the readings should be, but if they are all giving the same reading they should be ok. Alternatively what I do is connect a short length of electrical wire to the cable connection on the plug - connect it to the positive terminal of a fully charged 12volt car battery and then touch the body of the plug to the negative post and hold it there, keeping your fingers away from the tip. The tip of the plug should glow white hot within a few seconds - if that happens its ok. A bit primitive I know but your only replicating what happens on the car.

    Good luck with it - the only reason I suggest checking them before fitting is that they are a bit of a pain to fit - you don't want to go to all that trouble only to have to take them out again!

    if you do have a go at changing them & it's a success please please take plenty of photo's & post them as it does not seem like an easy job on the 120's. there are many pipes that seem to be in the way.

    Cheers
