    MINE IS ON A 53 PLATE SO I'M HOPING THAT A GOOD SET OF PLUGS WILL GET RID OF SOME OF THE FLAT SPOTS THAT I HAVE

    Should do, have you done the airbox mod? In my case that helped a bit, also try replacing air intake with the shorter GSI one. Their is a thread about it in the petrol tunning section. Think it is called "Recomedations for the 1.8 owners".

    The plugs should help as well, at least I am hoping that the Denso IK16's should make a bit of a difference to the pick up of my car.

    Let us know how it goes.
