    Thread: Where do you buy your NGK spark plugs?

    1. 04-12-2012 05:09 PM #1
      I am looking for NGK BKR7E spark plugs. Googled it but all it comes up from is ebay and amazon. I don't buy engine parts from there due most of the stuff sold there is made in china. Idk where ngk manufacturers their stuff but i know china bootlegs their ngk plugs so i want to make sure i buy it from the right place.

      If anyone can give me their site where they get them from that would be greatly appreciated.

      any oreily's i have ever seen didnt carry ngks and when i asked for them they tried to argue with me telling me i need platinum plugs never had someone try to aggressively suggest parts on me especially a stupid idea like platinum plugs in a high performance turbo engine

      just call up your local oreilly and ask if they have ngk bkr7e plugs, if they say no we have none in stock, then say I need you to order 4 (or 8). IF they say they cant, then ask to speak to a manager.
      Oreilly stocks NGK plugs in their warehouses.

      IIRC honda d15/d16 engines use bkr6e plugs

      Yes, and part # 6962 is for the BKR6E plugs, which is the same heat range as stock plugs.

      ok thanks.

      So I looked up the NGK BKR7E using the Part Number: 4644 on Autozone.com and the plug that came up is the: NGK V Power/Spark Plug. The issue is that the webiste states that it will not fit a 2001 VW GTI 1.8T.

      Is this the correct part? Should I ignore Autozones 'warning' message??

      Thanks!

      Not sure...but the reason the bkr7e doesn't fit our car according to autozone is the heat rating. Our car came with a 6 head range NGK plug. This is a cooler, 7 range NGK plug.

      Thread, length, resistor, seat is all the same.
