    Hi guys, im just about to renew my plugs on my e46 and whilst looking on ebay there seem to be two types (that I know of) of spark plug that NGK sell. Irridium and Platinum. Anyone know which is better. All I know is that on NGK website they say I need NGK part number - BKR6EQUP


    Thanks

    Steve

    Platinums are fine Iridiums possibly better for racing. Didn't notice any difference myself though
