Re: The Right Spark Plugs

<<SO, while we're on the subject, what is the collective wisdom on the
best plugs for the n/a 10v engine?  I've used Bosch Platinums and always
liked the smoothness they seem to give, but that could be compared with
old bad plugs.  Any comments appreciated, although a genuine consensus
would be better!>>

     Based on the comments by Ned Ritchie re: platinum Bosch plugs, as well as
the recommendation by TWO Audi mechanics in Nashville, I have used only Bosch
copper plugs in both of my '87 5K quats.  I've thought about the tri-
electrodes, but don't consider them worth the extra cost.  The Bosch web site
says the 3-e plugs were not designed to improve power, but to increase plug
life.  I figure they'd know.  Since I like to change mine every once in a
while anyway, I've stuck with the standard plugs.
