                  Good replacement for the NGK in my 96 Jag XJ6. I like the fact that no gapping is necessary. Performance seems improved and the engine seems to run smoother overall. So far I am pleased, but of course time will tell.

                        Very good spark plugs. But you will notice that after installed , the engine will not smooth on idle as the regular plugs. But you will get better performance. I have replace this plugs 4 times ony car and enjoy with them.

                              The difference is the design and the metal used on the tip. Although the Platinum +4 is supposed to last longer, the iridiums will give better performance. Be careful with the Platinum +4 plugs because they have been known to damage electrical components of the ignition system in certain vehicles when used.

                              You should need either a spark plug socket that measures 5/8" or 11/16".
