Kneal, I had a no start a while back with the ol Pearl
beast & it turned out that the Bosch plugs I was using
were not rated cold enough for the conditions. Weather
the previouse week was nearer 40 deg's......& in a
week it went to minus deg weather.
 I dropped in 8 OE dealer plugs & it fired rite up.
Mind you the Bosch plugs I had in there beforehand
were only 500 miles old.

 Funny conclusion to the plugs is.....I saved
them....since they only had 500 miles on them. So I
had the chance to reuse them on a friends car after I
did a motor swap & cut to a cold Maine morn the car
wouldn't start...I told the guy to yank the plugs, (at
this time I had talked to Keith about a cheaper
alternative to the expensive OE dealer plugs & he said
to use Autolight 103's)...so when the guy called me I
told him, as I noted above...yank the plugs & put some
AL 103's in. Well the car fired rite up. I told the
guy to toss those Bosch plugs in the Ocean!

 Just a long winded thought.
