Source for spark plugs?

PARTICULARLY Bosch H9DC0's NOT the HR9DC0's

Stupid frigging resistor spark plugs are everywhere and I can't find any original NON-RESISTOR bosch ones.

Also could use:

NGK BP6EFS (as per RBYCC's suggestion)
Champion S12YCC
Beru 14 K-9 DU0 from kingsborne but apparently they arent reliable to order from...

HELP!!

NGK

TR5GP The resistor is only 5K ohm and your coil can shoot through that and you never know the difference.
Have you checked your spark plug wires resistance? A new set is only $80 bosch oe
I don't think you will find any BP6EFS
Fastlane is running out quick,if you absolutely positively must have the last of the H9DCO's

remember no anti seize

someone could mail you some.It only cost me $6 postage to send a 17mm M112 m113 spark plug boot removal tool up to Dunster and you are way closer than that.

Arrgh..more things to consider, ohlord?? Anti seize?

Hmm...YNVDIZ, you have 6 h9dc0's locally? I'd pay you for your time as well. I'd like 12 if you can get them....just so I don't have this issue again.

Should I get new wires too? Best brand and part #? I had a dude look up which wires were needed for my car and he quoted $200 lol

The guy

quoted you List price and www.autohausaz.com sells them shop price.80 bucks.Free delivery down here

Anti-seize: people used to use it on the plug threads before the new generation of plugs came out that are coated with a trivalent metal anti seize
plating so you don't use it any more and eliminate the risk of getting the old stuff on the electrode and shorting it out.
Have someone get you the wires and plugs and label it Gift
or see if autohausaz.com ships up.

On the wire questio

You can test your wires resistence,but unless they went on fire or someone yanked on them to remove them from the plugs at some time in the past,they probably test out fine.MB used some good plug wires.

This dealer shows ten Bosch in the USA, not sure of shipping to Canada.
http://www.truckmod.com/directpart.a...rtnumber=H9DCO

I bought twelve NGK BP6EFS from this UK seller with no problems.
The BP5EFS listed below are an equivalent heat range to the H9DCO, whereas the BP6EFS is a step colder which I use in my TT.

WHICH plugs? Check the part number on the actual plug and box please!

Sometimes they've said they were sending H9DC0's but you actually get HR9DC0....R stands for Really crappy for M103's

I checked the box. I got the F8DC4 non-resistor plugs specified for my vehicle.

I don't think they carry H9DC0 plugs. You didn't specify which model you drive, so you'll have to double-check yourself.

Hey I could get you the plugs too, and wires, if you wanted; non-resistor (which is what I just put in mine) and for the cheap price. sounds like you have some other options to go with but I thought I'd let you know I could help you out since I'm just across the border.
