    8k km for spark plug change?

    Havnt looked into it but I'd say the norm would be like most other engines, 20-30k km. iridiums 30k km plus easily, depending on what plug manufacturer recommends.

    I would have thought the same, even the rx8 plugs are good for 15-20k and they go hot!

    I’ve to do my own on Tuesday along with my timing belt - should be fun!!!

    The tip on 1 looks bent out aswell so gap would be off . Gap new ones to .65 or .7 would be good
