for BEST results go w/ Bosch Super F 8 LDCR. this is the oem plug, and recomended for a reason. for more info, feel free to check out my review on Bosch plats in the review forum.

Yes it has been discussed many times. Yes most people will agree it is best to use the OEM plugs as jllphan stated above.
