RE: Bosch W7 DTC vs Bosch Platinum?

   I use the W5DTC in the 85 ur-q because the '5' heat range is correct for =
   the ur-q. The 5K/200 turbos use the '7' heat range, hence the W7DTCs in =
   the big Qs. I fergit if the 5 or the 7 is hotter/colder......my guess is =
   that the 5 is colder for less detonation at high boost.

Bosch uses higher numbers for "colder" plugs (with "colder" generally meaning
suitable for use in "hotter" engines...); 

So I guess the factory specifies a hotter plug for the ur-q Vs the 5000/200TQ....? 
That's the reverse of what I would have thought.
