I think it can be said quite easily that NGK plugs are the way to go.

Personally, i would recommend Bosch Leads, they're the ducks nuts.

You get what you pay for basically.

Top gun or Eagle leads are good.
I'll be different here and say I use Autolite 985 plugs and have no reason to change. They work extreamly well on my car.

I wouldn't touch TOPGUNS I have had nothing but trouble with them in the past. Bad Quality with the Boots falling of the Leads etc Then after 6 months had to replace them cause they were arking out and giving me Flat spots while driving. I changed to Bosch ones a year ago and have no problems since. I also only use Bosch plugs now as well.
Supercheap Auto got 20% off tommorrow as well
