    if it's a standard S3 use the standard plugs, cannot see any advantage in anything other. I use Bosch F5DP0R in mine as it is remapped

    Use NGK Iridium plugs - there are loads of threads on here about the benefits they bring. Search around a bit.

    Denso Iridium VK20Y, vagtech recommended, installed on many TTS's. told no need to alter gap even with remap.

    Still running the standard plugs here,with Stage 2+,and no problems.

    We did try the Iridiums in an effort to cure a misfire,but the solution was another problem altogether!
