Not disputing there is a difference in the configuration of the plugs. It
is just the designation platinum vs. platin. These are all listed as
platinum plugs. They have different plug numbers therefore, they are
different plugs. When I order from Bosch, I don't ask for platin plugs I
ask for plugs by their part number.
If you ask for you specific plug by part number not by name you will be sure
to always get what you want.
