    Is anybody using uprated or better quality parts eg. K&N oil filter or a better fuel filter etc is there any point in these or are standard parts good enuff?

    I normally use a combination of GSF or OEM parts... oil wise go for 5W40 fully synth (I use Quantum Platinum), filters from GSF who also normally sell the sump drain plug for a quid...

    Spark plug wise use NGK's... GSF supply Bosch super 4's normally but you can get platinum or irridium 6's on ebay or from Sparkplugs UK NGK Champion Denso Sparkplug, Glowplug and Lambda Sensors...

    Platinums are PFR6Q and irridiums are BKR6EIX
