PSA: NGK spark plugs superseded?

Hi all,

Went into the local repco after a set of NGK BP6EFS plugs for my 300TE however they told me they had been superseded by a R type plug so I bought the BP6EFS-13 plugs instead. However the another auto store had the BP6EFS in stock so be weary which store you're at to make sure you get the non-resistor copper plugs if they're the ones you want.

thanks

theres tons on ebay.

What are these plugs used for ?

I bought all remaining new old stock champion and bosch plugs factory specified for my australia version m104.980 and will continue to do so as they show up. One will have to pry them from my cold dead hands if they wanted any. :rr:

I have a workshop manual that recommends the NGK BP6EFS plugs and I've used them hassle free as they are/were available at retail outlets. What are the stock numbers for the champion and bosch plugs?

not too sure where you'd use the -13 or the R but I don't think they're for a 103/104

Just got a pack of 36 NGK BP6EFS plugs from an Australian eBay seller for $42 post paid. Yes 36 plug for $42! Picked them up from a local Woolworths Supermarket parcel collection point. Should keep me (and the car) going for a bit. Unfortunately I got the last of them from him.
