      Comments about NGK Iridium Ix Spark Plug (BKR6EIX):

      I dropped these into BMW E46 with 30K on plugs (4 prong NGKs), and Volvo V70 with 30K on single prong NGK nickel plugs. (They take same plugs) The Volvo experienced a very clear power improvement under full throttle, plus noticeable mpg improvement on highway. The BMW experienced . . . nothing. The Volvo plugs were out of spec on removal, the BMW's were not. TO be expected, but I was impressed that only 30K truly ate the Volvo plugs.

        Comments about NGK Iridium Ix Spark Plug (BKR6EIX):

        These are a great upgrade for my 1998 BMW M3. I had the NGK Laser Platniums before. I always change my plugs every 30-40k, so I didn't feel any improvement in performance over the Laser Plats yet as I had it for only 50 miles. But these were cheaper. And way cheaper than the BMW ones.

                These plugs did what they claimed and work well. I have only had them in for a week but the throttle time has improved over the stock plugs. I am glad I purchased these rather than the recommended stock plugs and agree with most other comments on here. I would recommend getting the NGK spark plug wires to add to this as well because their wires are inexpensive and go well with these.

                These are easy to install on a supercharged Mini Cooper and are reasonably priced in comparison with what BMW charges for their plugs.
