FW: [Syncro_T3_Australia] spark plugs

Greg & All,
So at this stage, seems then what I am presently using ... NGK bp6es, albeit without official VAG blessing, is ok. Interestingly and contrary to online negative comment about Champion plugs, NGK plug comment online was quite positive.

Anyone recently contacted a VAG outlet to enquire which brand/s and models of plug they currently supply as genuine for our WBX 2.1?

I tend to think if VAG can still source a Beru brand genuine, then that would be an excellent alternative, subject though to their usual prohibitive retail pricing. For example , I recently bought from VAG the genuine 9.5mm (uncommon size) V belt for $31. Much dearer than 3rd party 10mm (common) V belts.

Cheers.
Ken

I have never had a problem with NGK or Nippondenso plugs.

But your VAG belt should last another 20 years.
