Guys,

what is the standard change interval for sparkplugs? My
has covered 32,000 miles and im guessing is still on the original plugs. No problems at all, and only a DS remap so far, just wondered what the recommended interval is?

Ta,

Mark

I think (don't quote me on this) it's done on the second service 2yrs old/ 25k which mine was and did wonder when they would need changing again as I have now done 50k in 2yrs

Hi there,

Just a couple questions regarding the plugs, I notice that some owners use S60R plugs and yourself with the RS plugs. What's the main difference between the standard plugs and I assume the uprated others?

Would a standard ST benefit from the uprated plugs?

Many thanks

I am very interested in the difference with running the rs plugs. Does this make any difference??
Thanks

Doesn't the new ST come with the same plugs as the RS now?

Changed my 2007 ST's plugs with newly purchased RS plugs few months ago and found the old plugs to be exactly the same. New plugs made a world of difference to the responsivnes though.

Had mine changed yesterday on my 3rd year service. I too went for a set of RS plugs and found them to make a big difference although i would say its prob the fact that they're new plugs more than being uprated ones. A worthy choice though as they only cost a little over £40 inc postage from team torquesteer with club discount.
