    Default Bosch Super W8LCR

    Winfred and Bill R.: You guys seem to rave about this plug so I thought I'd give it a try. Went to Kragen to special order these and the guy tells me that each plug is $24.99!!! What!!! "It's a high performance plug," he says. I'm looking at the receipt as I type this message just to make sure my eyes are not playing tricks on me. Is this guy taking me to the cleaners?

    Whoa, that's way too much. I just ordered a set for 3 euros (about $4) a piece. I live in Finland so that may explain the difference, but still, that's really expensive.

    cant find the super bosch on the site, maybe it is special order but the regular bosch W8LCR comes up all over the place. I refuse to admit you get what you pay for at them prices. This is a USA price????

    Default Yup, it's US of A

    I looked at several sites and some say $36.99 (Kragen, Checker) while NAPA says $44.99. It doesn't say if it's per box or plug but I think rommel is right... about 2 bucks per pop. I'll contact BMA.

    Thanks fellas!

    Default Previously had Bosch Platinum +4's but Yves recomended

    the stock Bosch W8LCR. I'm satisfied with the mileage gain, probably from the entire tune up, it's been 2 years since last tune up. The W8lcr's was also about 3/16" longer than the +4's, not sure how that contributes to combustion. I don't remember the markings on the package also whether or not they were supers???? but they work great.
