The plugs are really simple to test if you read archives ----now to replace the little bastards is someting else.. I take the lines off as a unit -makes it a lot simpler. No matter what NEVER reinstall OLD style plugs --- throw them in the river --get rid. Make sure to get BOSCH plugs ----take my word ---they are a PITA to do so get the best. We are NOT changing sparkplugs ---get it ?. And yes new style plug will work in old system. NO need for a new relay. But I do recommend the NEW RELAY ---it is a better system. BUT that is about 50 dollars just for the relay here. -----Better choice is install your own relay and a pushbutton on dash . Like me ----Apple pie say I. For a DIY driver a manually controlled system is best. .For your wife or girlfriend ? Well they can learn to do it ---and no shitt they will be better at it than you before you can say Glow worm Glow. Hagar. PS : How do I use the manual system ? Like a master controller---totally in control . Not sitting there like an IDIOT hoping that a VW relay timer is going to do it right. Here in the great white north ---conditions change so much that no German Relay will do it. Knowing that the NEW plugs are designed for a 3 minute ON cycle makes a start a piece of APPLE pie. So push on for a minute and try to start. I have NO problems since I got the NEW style plugs. I would not even take the OLD style if they were free.
