    Default recommended spark plugs for DKZ motor?

    What are you guys using for a 205 DKZ series 2. ? The service books dont give any info.
    I am thinking to go for NGK BCP6 E....

    Thx for that. My service book says " contact your service agent" What they dont say in addition " so we can charge you double"

    Kind of off topic but kind of not, I bought some plugs for my gti today - NGK bp7efs. Got 'em home, had a look, and they have tapered seats, thought that was odd because both my 205's have crush washer type plugs fitted....
    So I went and pulled a plug from the gti and it looks like the plug seats are also tapered, fitted one of the new plugs, tightened it carefully, then removed it and closely inspected the mating point and it looks like it fits properly.
    So what's the deal - interchangeable? wrong plugs? I'm puzzled...

    Maybe interchangeable. There is a site where you can check their cross reference . The ones that keep popping up for 205 Gti's are NGK BCPR7ES both here and the UK.
    Repco have them on special at the mo as well :}
