    S4 Sparks

    Last time I had these changed, Doug at MRC put a set of RS2 Platinum's in. Now does anyone know the life of these (as car seems same as always, but they were changed three years ago) and do I need these again or are the S4 alternatives just as good??

    Any info would be helpful

    The RS2 plugs (Bosch F5PDOR) spark a little cooler than the standard ones, which keeps EGT's down. I think i've seen MRC recommend that these are changed every 10,000 miles on a highly tuned S4 (400+bhp), but imagine they are probably fine for much longer than that. If you're still on K03's then it shouldn't really matter so much which plugs you have fitted.
