    Just bought a set of NGK BKUR6ET-10 for my 1.8tqs
    They are tripple electrode, never used before so thought i would try them.
    Anyone used this type? or had problems with them?

    Was going to get BKR6EK first but the got the others instead.
    Will fit tomorrow and have a run to see what they are like.

    I'm sure thats whats in ours just now. -10 means the gap is 1mm though and i think it should be more like 0.7 or 0.8mm.

    They've done 40k and are pretty damn worn, but it still runs perfectly lol. The gaps easily over 1mm, but it only ever missfires if you start it from cold and shut the engine off quickly, say shunting the car around the drive. Next restart it'll be lumpy but will clear with some revs. Thats probably down to the wear though!
