I would advise against bosch super 4's. I had a set break up on me. They are expensive as well. Vauxhall designed the engine and knows which plugs work best! Trust them!

Most of the Vauxhall peeps swear by the NGK V Grooved, why pay an extra tenner for no extra performance by getting Bosch super 4s?

I use NGK V grooved (just cause they look funky though!!).

get vauxhall ones mate.

You wont get any performance gain from so called performance plugs/ HT leads. The only gain you WILL get is what you had lost due to worn plugs/leads

my corsa b sxi came with bosh 4 electrode plugs
GM don't make their own..
Just buy plugs that fit, all they have to do is spark, if they spark then thats all they need to do.. the cheapest spark on the market will still light the fuel as a really expensive one.
and when you have your bonnet up at the shows who can see your plugs?

thats right, GM plugs are actually Bosch ones with GM stamped on them. What your after is reliability, and Bosch make the toughest electrical goods on the market.

What's the point in looking at spark plugs? They always look the same colour - I dunno what the back of the Haynes manual is talking about.
