    Platinums are a waste of time, the only thing they do is give you a longer service interval. imho the additional cost over a stock plug just makes them unviable.

    Euro's always try and sell me the platinum plug for my engine but I always give them the NGK BKR6E (iirc) number and get a set of 4 for under a tenner.

    Sure I was recomended a colder plug for a tweeked engine but can't for the life of me recall the part number. I have a set in my kitchen drawer so will get the numbers off them when I get home

    If they're NGKs as well the next colder plug would be a 7 so BKR7E

    And I agree, using fancier/costlier plugs isn't my choice unless the yare required for the type of use they'll be getting.
    For a normal(ish) road car the standard NGKs are plenty good enough.
