    Default beru sparkplugs

    i put a set of beru sparkplugs in my 205 gti and they seem to make a difference,generaly quicker starting ,better idle and more oommppff.i put a new set of leads and cap and rotor and ran the ngk's for about 10-14 more days they had only done 3000k's so ill keep them for spares.
    i ran the ngk's for a while just to make sure the difference wasnt the new leads,they cost more [$8.50 each but last longer.
    has anyone ever used GOLDEN LODGE spark plugs in their 205 gti's,i used them all the time in my old 504's and they lasted a hell of a long time.the guys at the italian job use them on the lancias and italian cars but dont have them for pugs and i cant find a distributor for them-bazz

    ya gotta give the beru plugs ago.
    get them from reagans in hawthorn as they always have stock.
    you dont have to gap them so just swap them over and watch and feel the difference.
    i swear my car has more pulling power when i use them.
    i had ngk;s for a while and they were good for a couple of months but then seemed to not work as well after that period.
    ive had the beru's in for about 15.000 k's now and they still seem to have lots a life in them.
    if ya got the dough,get a new rotor cap and dizzy cap.
    im not sure how old yours is but seemed to look a bit faded when i looked at it the other day.
    about $100 all up should get you a new cap,rotor and beru plugs.
    get the cap and rotors from caravell or euro auto import in box hill .[much cheaper than peugeot]
    the beru plugs are hard to find ,but usually regans have them.
    you wont know the car .-bazz

    not cheap but i reckon they are worth it.
    they seem to last a long time.-BAZZ

    I don't understand how that is expensive.

    I jumped on the NGK Iridium bandwagon when they first came out about 6 years back. They cost me $24 EACH for the Mi16 (not even a Big Mac in change from a hundred). I did, however, run them for nearly 100,000kms without touching them, and when I did finally change them the new ones (same thing) made no difference, and they looked like the day I'd put them in. The megger also indicated that they were perfect.

    I wouldn't complain about an $8 spark plug if you're that happy with them!

    yah ive got ngk iridiums in the s1 205 they seem to be going ok, i guess. sorry to highjack this thread but just wanted to know because the iridiums dont need to be change for quite a while, would inspecting the sparkies, every so often, foul them?

    8 bucks for sparkies is nothing and if they go well as bazz suggests, i might give em a go in the s3 next month.

    Anyone got an opinion on Valeo plugs? I just got a set (twin electrode thingies) for the 406. At $6.50 each, they are less then half what NGKs would have cost!!

    Have run them in the R25 with good results (last for ages), but thats pretty low tech compared to the 406...

    absoloutley correct in pricing assesment.but some people who pay $4.50 for the ngk's think $8 is too much to pay for beru's.phooey on them.
    i used to buy golden lodge plugs which were $20 each in 1987.
    but i find these sort of plugs last longer.-BAZZ

    I don't know what you mean by an S16 but you can find the right Beru plug for any car on their site: http://www.beru.com/english/produkte/produktfinder.php

    I just went to that by doing a quick search with Google (I'd never heard of Beru plugs until I read this thread). They sound good though.

    Certainly have tried the Bosch Super 4, I have been using them for the past 4 years in my 205 and they have been very reliable.

    Another good set I have run are in my 203 which has a worked 403/404 motor is the Silver core Bosch plugs. They had an absolute hammering over the past 10 years and were still working strong believe it or not before a cracked piston slowed the old girl.

    a bit off topic, but put in a set of Valeo twin ground electrode type plugs in the 406 ST, and wow - what a differance! More torque, revvier, everything. But it had bloody Champion plugs in there, so it could only be an improvement......
