    Did tune-up of 2 coils, plugs and wires/boots. Mazda 2001 Protege runs like new now. Cheap fix. Shop wanted to install new o2 sensors, new cats etc. at a cost of $1900. I bought these parts and paid $75 to install.

      Comments about NGK V Power Spark Plug (BKR5E-11):

      I purchased these plugs off the web site for the family 2000 Nissan Quest with 100,000 miles. It was having rough idle and hesitation-upon-acceleration issues. I replaced the plug wires and distributor at the same time. After that, I had to slightly adjust the timing (15 deg. BTDC) and it was off to the races. Now the vehicle runs like new. After a 600 mile trip pulling a sailplane on a trailer, no more chugging, and shaking. At one point before the parts swap, the thing shook so bad I thought I had a flat. Now it's on to the speed sensor.

                          Car idles better and seems to have better pick up but it's ten times smoother running over the stock plugs. Havent really checked gas mileage yet but seems to be a slight improvement.

                                I would check them at around 30,000 or 50,000 miles.

                                These are standard plugs, Replace them every 30K
                                Please ignore the other answer that says 30 or 50K, THESE ARE 30K PLUGS! Sure they will go 50K but they will not be performing the way they should.
