    Default Best Spark plugs for a Citroen D??

    Just wondering if anyone has a preference for any particular brand of spark plug for a D series?
    If so it is to suit a ID21 of 1966/7
    Just a normal heat range plug....
    Cheers & Thankls

    Andrew.

    I've been running a set of Super 4's in Moby for several years now. When the mood takes me I take them out, look at them, realise they don't need cleaning or adjusting and put them back in for some more work and a further period of being ignored.

    I reckon they're great. Not sure which ones I'm using and I can't check as the car isn't here for a week or two. (Having a sleepover at a Son's place while a new shed gets built) That being said, WR78 rings a vague bell.

    Cheers, Pottsy

    Nah sorry. To old and to scary these days.

    Truth is I just don't have the room. They can sit here for weeks waiting on some obscure part and we just can't do it anymore.

    Just did a quick count and I have 21 packets of 4 plugs still in stock, thats 84 spark plugs.

    Problem is with these plugs, there so good there's is little or no repeat business, As Pottsy says, he just takes them out and looks at them and puts them back in.

    These plugs, WR78g fit CX and D also Renault 8/10 and 12. Whatever takes BP6HS.

    I just remember, Is there GOLD plated one available for this fitting? Or iridium one.
    Does this fit? http://www.ebay.com/itm/NGK-BPR6HIX-...-/380387960219
    DO not need to replace them ever again!
    But I only drive it on weekend non rainy day so standard one should be fine! I feel I just enjoy pulling things apart and putting back as well as driving the car!


    Update: I just read that Iridium plug does not improve performance and conduct less compared to standard one. I think standard one is better.

    Don't go iridium. waste of time and money.
    If you enjoy replacing plugs just stick to standard NGK BP6HS. If you enjoy taking them out and looking at them and putting them back in go for the super 4's. Or if you don't like playing with engines go for super 4.

    These super 4's are the same as standard except they have 4 electrodes instead of 1 so they burn better. (aparently)

    So why do 4 sparks in about the same place as one make any difference? I'm on BP6HS, changed regularly every 6 years or so. That's not many plugs in a lifetime.....

    It's an ID21F ...an interim model with single h/light but 5 stud wheels,LHM and power steering
    I find the purchase price is only the deposit on ownership...then the real spending starts

    True but what are you paying for BP6HS's These super 4's work out to $5.50 each, cheep as chips for something as reliable as these.

    Haven't you ever been cornered by a D?? there's no escape
    first she will be getting some attention to both body and mechanicals....probably will need a new front wiring loom made up and have already spoken to Griesy about it....
    I will have her on Club plates so she won't be used as a market hack....maybe a GS wagon for that job?
