Re: Spark Plugs Iridium LFR5AIX-11 1.1


Here we go again!

I think we have been there before Dave and am not going through that with you YET AGAIN!

Use whatever plugs you like and interpret my post anyway you like as well, after 5 posts of yours in this thread I am not any closer to see any point of [sign in to see URL] yet and your last answer made it even more blurry.

Cheers mate.

I am not sure how much more clearer can I make myself without sounding like attacking you, or do you hang there on each word I use and swing it anyway you like and please?

Dave,

Sounds to me like you've already decided you don't want to pay the extra for Iridiums.
That's fine, and so is asking questions to determine if you are possibly missing some point to it, but continuously attacking what people are trying to explain to you will not make you popular, probably making them less inclined to be helpful in future.

Let's just agree to disagree on this topic and let it lie at that eh ? emoticon

Kev,
I'm willing to pay that and more it just depends if there is anything better as I dont mind changing my spark plugs at 40,000k's and a as a group I thought there would have been more alternatives to the original equipment plug in japan. But with your support of the plugs it looks like there is nothing better so this means we stop looking

Re: Spark Plugs Iridium LFR5AIX-11 1.1


Guys,

As a forum it seems we're being requested to list every spark plug on the planet to be fair to all and not to be considered as promoting a good brand over others, so here it goes:

* CHAMPION
* BOSCH
* NGK
* NOLOGY
* DENSO

These are the plugs that come to mind.

It is up to you to research and provide feedback on any of the listed plugs above (or others) and we have already done the work and provided our feedback and reviews (positive one) on the NGK Iridiums.

Our forum and Nissan Japan support for the NGK brand does NOT mean that anyone else out there willing to pay top or bottom dollar for spark plugs should stop looking. We're not the Gospel for plugs and anything else that is car related for this matter. Our forum disclaimer is VERY clear in this regard.

Each one of you needs to weigh-up the costs of upgrading their spark plugs and the benefits of selecting iridiums over standard plugs and it will be YOUR decision to go one way or the other.

While some of us have time to change their plugs every 40K, others may prefer to run with a more reliable spark plug that lasts a bit longer.

HINT: If you (members) are trying to ask about alternative brands mentioned on the forum, don't start bagging what we have discussed or provided feedback on already, it signals a negative attitude towards an effort and honest opinion provided by many actual users of that brand, hence your chances of getting help and guidance will be affected accordingly!

Dave,

I think this has blown out of proportion, nobody is saying the iridium plug is the best ever plug and don't use anything else, all they are saying is that they believe this plug is the best value for money for their application through their own trial and error.

I don't and I am sure no one else on this forum has the time and resources to check every plug on the market, use it, analyse the results and them post the details for everyone to see.

The same goes for any mod anyone does, if you find something that is good and want to share your find, post it on the forum for all to see. I am sure you will get a lot of critiquing of the subject but ultimately, if someone like it and wants to use it, it's their choice, no on is forced to use it.

I personally know diddly squat about spark plugs and the only reason I had them fitted to my car was because of recommendations from everyone on this site, and after all that is the whole purpose of this forum - isn't it?

After using these plugs I have noticed a remarkable difference, I personally would not use anything less in quality than the iridium plugs but that does not stop me checking out other brands to try to find something better.

This forum is about sharing information, use it - or not, it's a personal choice.

Jamie,

 I could not have put it better myself. Most of the additions to my exy have come from this and overseas forums, including non xtrail related.

 If you look deep enough, every aspect of motoring and performance modifications have been proved and then disproved numerous times over.

 I believe if you find a good thing, stick with it, but also be open to suggestions and the opinions of others.

Jamie,
The NGK plugs are the one's I'm getting but as a forum I thought there might be a new product in iridium or a improved product since they came out that someone has seen. I research everything before I buy always have and always will. But in saying that very well written response and I agree

Good stuff Ray.

Do you have the specifications run-down for the Denso plugs showing their life-span and ignitability for comparison purposes?
