    Default Spark plugs

    Was about to purchase these https://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-92161-d...g-ikh20tt.aspx


    But they cannot confirm they are suitable for the vxr. Anyone able to confirm or suggest an alternative as they seem a good price but obviously no good if they are not correct!


    TIA

    Thanks both for your quick replies, went to Neo Brothers as suggested and bought the NGK £7.50 each, thanks for the tip as never heard of the company.

    I'd imagine it's these ones, not sure if you can cross reference OEM part numbers though: - https://www.neobrothers.co.uk/spark-...-07-2860-p.asp

    I found the ikh24 seemed to be a bit lumpy sometimes as I think they are cooler running and I don't really give my car too much welly so I went with the ikh that matches the original heat range of the car. Not had any issues yet and they've been in there well over a year. I'd have to dig out the model number but they seem to suit my car well.
