    I have them, not sure they have any real performance benefit other than they last much longer - certainly no worse though.

          Just FYI the car comes with NGK Platinum plugs so any improvement will be marginal :wink:

            i used the NGK BKR7EIX's in the Zafira and were fine smoother running and better economy

              How much do the iridium's cost, plus any recommended supplier?

                Alex Fi the plugs in your VXR are the Iridium ones but the warranty ones have a smaller gap.


                But if you want to change then Courtenays do the NGK BKR6EIX for £32.00

                i used the BKR7EIX's and i used to get them for £24.00 from a local discount parts centre

                  Erm little confused then. If the VXR comes with Iridium plugs then why the original post, or am I being dumb again? Also, thought the plugs were replaced due to a gap issue? Could be me as I am a little tired....

                    Some ppl dont know too much about the VXR thats why they ask on here.

                    yes the plugs did have a gap issue and is sorted out with the warranty ones.

                    I cant see any need to fit different plugs from std unless your running loads of mods and loads of power

                      So basically the replacements from VXL are Iridium plugs, but are slighlty smaller than the ones listed, but larger than the original plugs provided hence the advisory notice?

                      Just making sure I am comopletely clear

                      Ps. Thanks for patience and explaination, no thanks for the skirt and cleaning comments (lol).

                        No No No!

                        The original plugs have the larger gap thus the replacement.

                        Both the VXL plugs are iridium.

                        High levels of tune might benefit from a cooler running plug like the NGK

                              The original spark plugs for the VXR are NGK PLATINUM not IRIDIUM.
                              Code NGK PFR6T10G

                              SPARKPLUGS.CO.UK will send 4 x NGK BKR6EIX iridium, free delivery to your door for £32.85
