Which Iridium to choose?

Postby meganeboy » Sat Apr 28, 2007 10:33 am

Hi guys, a quick one here..... which is the best iridium plug to fit, NGK or Denso?

I found them on eBay as they are not available locally. NGK plugs are aroung GBP25 set of four, while Denso are GBP35. NGK are 0.6mm while Denso are 0.4mm..... got confused now!! :?

Help please :!: :!:

Make sure they are "resistive" plugs you are fitting as non-resistive ones can cause running problems due to interference/radiation from the ignition system..

Hi Webcode, the Denso plugs have a 5kohm resistance in built... don't know about the NGK though.....

I have NGK ones.
Very good, responsiveness changed.
Also when I let go of the clutch the car doesn't tremble as much. If you get what I mean. This is when no accelerator is applied and car is stationary, the friction point.

Has anyone out there tried the Denso plugs? is it an advantage to have the tip smaller than the NGK plugs?

The NGK's tip is 0.6mm, Denso's is 0.4mm. Any ideas?

There is no direct part no for Denso to be use for Renault M2... which means u got to Re-Gap it... and I would not recommend it...

I do have some guys I know who use it and complain...

NGK for far no problem :)

Hey guys.....

Just changed the standard plugs to NGK Iridium and I can say they do quite a difference on the car's performance.... it feels much better, idling is smoother, and accelleration feels better too.....

While messing around with the car, I also took the bumper off and replaced the standard bulbs to Osram SilverStar. I noticed that I had one of the headlamps loose from the bottom and after re-installing everything went for a test drive and I can say that the small banging sound I used to hear from the front went away. Turned out to be this loose headlamp!

Quite happy now. Any idea if aftermarket ignition coils would further improve the performance? was having a look at these :
