24 fouled arc paths on the Bosch 4+ plugs the previous owner put in and were all ashy white. So I went to the dealer and bought 6 for $1.65 each rather than $4.00 each for the Bosch 4+'s. I went home, sat down on the crapper and began to gap the plugs. Finished my business and then went and installed them. Icouldnt believe how much better the old 30v ran. Best mod to date! For future searchers, gap from factory is .040

You went to the Audi dealership and it was that cheap for stock sparks?

Yes sir, and they threw in a quick lesson on plug gapping. It could have been because I was asking how much their coolant was too. IDK.

platinum 4 plugs suck... good idea but just dosent work well.

white plugs arent nessecarily fouled... that generally means they were too hot... were probably the wrong plugs.
