Spark Plugs For A 98

Recommended Posts

So im going to have an early 90000 mile tune up done on my car for summer. . I am not going to a porsche dealer, but having a local place that I used to work at do it instead for well below 1/2 the quoted cost of the dealer. The only question I have is, a mechanic there, that has worked on porsches before suggeted going with the NGKs instead of the Bosches. . After reading as many posts on here as i could find about the NGKs I am not so sure i trust him.

To the people that have NGKs in their car, do you regret it? Have you noticed any problems? and what plug did you put in? . .

To the people that say stick with OEM, would you go with the standard 2 prong bosche or the 4 prong? How strongly opposed to the NGKs are you?

My car has over 80000 miles on it, I def. dont want to damage it in any way shape or form, i just want to keep it running smoothly. Oh yeah, its a non S, 98.

I believe in paying for the expertise.

And part of what I'm paying for when I take the car in is that experience and knowledge of what is normal, what is abnormal, what can be deferred, what has to be done now.

I do some of the easy stuff myself. But for the hard stuff, I want someone working on my car who sees several a day, who does darn near everything to a Boxster so he spends half the time and knows the parts that work and the settings that don't. I'm paying him to see the things I don't have the experience to notice.

Beru and Bosch ... Beru preferred...they aren't that expensive.

I have been in the automotive repair trade for many years and the only spark plugs I have had problems with are NGK so I never recommend them if possible. I have heard of some reports with Bosch but have never seen any real data on the faults just internet reports. Stick with the OEM and you shouldn't have any problems.
