      I am looking at replacing the coil packs and spark plugs for my 1.8T. I am looking two pairs of spark plugs from NGK, one with platinum spark plugs and one with copper core spark plugs also from NGK. Any one care to share their knowledge/experience on the two?

      thanks

      If you looking for performance (they don't last long)choose the copper plugs due to copper's excellent conductivity.
      If you looking for longevity choose platinum or iridium plugs.
