Default BOSCH plugs (good or bad move?)

everyone is telling me they mess up our engines and all that. that NGK is the way to go. so can i get some feed back?

i installed my bosch back around 6-7 months ago, and my car is starting to misfire. can i blame the bosch plugs? or what else can cause me to have my engine snap crackle and pop?

YES

IT'S THE PLUGS

mine got destroyed after a few months, and one of them even melted and had no gap

as a result, i needed new plug wires, and a new cap&rotor :??:


i fixed it all, put in NGK's, and it ran better than it ever had 8D

You sure? I put +2's on my 1998 Hyundai Accent. Had it in there for 30,000 miles and it still there. the car runs fine. I just installed Bosch Platinum in my 1999 Tiburon.. already drove 4,000 miles with them,... no problem so far.

I've got Bosch +4s in my car and they work fine. I think I end up with a different brand of plugs every time I replace them, and I have never had any problems.

bah, bosch plugs suck.

Platinum plugs are only good for longevity, they don't spark as nice as copper.

I ise NGK V-powers and they work great.
