Call Joe @ Crescent Motorsports.

He apparently does VERY nice prices on the Iridium plugs.

Well the Iridiums should last 100,000km's, there also ment to be better. But they cost a lot more. You probably won't notice didly squat difference though when you fit them. But I still bought them.

I got mine half price, but it goes like that when you work at Repco. I had to order them direct from NGK as we didn't stock them and neither did our warehouses or distributors or anything, or any other Repco stores. I ordered in ones for my motorbike at the same time. Total was like $90 for 8 sparkies, probably closer to $180 if I was paying retail.

Yeah the iridium ones are the way to go...last loads longer and the spark distance on those is meant to be alot shorter depending on which ones you buy....great for guys chasing big HP figures, cause the ignition system should always be modified :wink:
