Probably been asked a million times but which spark plugs should i go for? Its a 2003 93 2.0t with a noobtune map karl advised the following plugs BCPR7ES or PFR6t-10g.

Price isnt the issue, just want to know the best to go for.

Ive read mixed reviews on the net.

My cars is missing really bad and is struggling to make 4psi, eml came on when i floored it, diagnosed as cyl 4 missing.

Please help.

They are at least as good, but they will need changing more often than the service schedule suggests. The platinum plugs were chosen so that plugs did not need changing before the two year service interval was up. Either will be fine.

I ended up buying the cheaper plugs and figure just change them more frequently. Also saves them welding themselves to the head that some times long spark plug intervals tend to do.

Plus they are only a tenner for a set of four.

All Alfa's T spark plugs (8 in total) was a right ball ache on cost. 4 platinum ones and 4 smaller ones. About £70 all in. So paying a tenner for the lot and changing them feels quite frugal
