    Hi mate, no problem here! Flat Spots Be Gone!!!!!
    Change your spraks to NGK Copper or above such as Platinums.
    Next Get an After market Panel Filter in your air box,such as BMC (which is wot i use)
    Always run on 98 ron fuel or above such as Tesco 99 Ron, or Shell V Power(again wot i be using)
    Now just inside your air box there is a wee little bit of plastic you can remove that increases the area of suction over the filter,look up 'airbox mod' on the forum.
    Lastly you can consider ripping out your current cold air feed to the air box and spend 7 quid on the 3.2v6 air in take,It's much shorter and does not run over the engine thus bring warm air in to the box,with the shorter intake lots mor cool air goes into your engine,and ever so slightly adds up to making A DIFFERENCE!!!!
    None apart from the sparks are expensive things to do (that depends on your fuel consumption of course!!!!) but you flat spot should be then dead and buried!!! Hurrah for cheap mods
