    Default WTF how did these still work??

    16V has been a bit rough on warm starts so I pulled out the plugs, look how worn down they are compared to a new one I don't know how they were working at all!!

    Maybe shorter service intervals are required.

    They have probably been there from new....

    My car is supposed to have platinum plugs too.... I asked the auto-electrician about them, "There no better, however they seem to last forever".... That's why I think they have been there from new .... That's probably 200,000km of use.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    Damn impressive ignition system, still being able to fire across that gap
    I tried to drown my sorrows in alcohol, but the bastards learnt how to swim
