Just want to change plugs! Called NGK FIGURED IT OUT (READ)

i had ordered the NGK NGK BCPR 7es-11 but when they came into the shop they were NGK BCPR 7e-11 Missing the "S". just not sure if these are the same or not. The lady at the shop said she looked in the new NGK order guide and these are what was listed for the 97 9000 cs.?

the saab 97 9000cs uses the NGK BCPR 7es-11 which is NGK stock number 1095.
the ones the part store gave me are NGK BCPR 7e-11 and have a stock number of 1267.

I googled ngk stock number 1267 and i was taken to an acura integra site, i am assuming this is a plug they use. So the thing i cant find out is what the hell does NGK BCPR 7es-11 mean if it is missing the "S" , which stands for super copper core centre electrode.

All i want to do is change my damn spark plugs why does everything need to be so hard!

still? am i missing something?

it is a cool link but I am still missing why the original plugs called for ( NGK BCPR7es-11) have the "S" which is description of center electrode and the ones i have NGK BCPR7e-11 don't have the "S". What is this telling us about the plug I was given?

Called NGK, figured it out?

phoned NGK canada today and the plugs i have NGK BCPR7E-11 are the right ones in canada, i was looking on NGK USA and the original NGK BCPR7ES-11 are still listed there as the right ones. The ones i have which are missing the letter "S" have a V groove on the electrode which they say give a more complete cleaner burn, where the original NGK BCPR7ES still have the traditional flat electrode. I am just hoping that NGK and their upgrades dont screw my DI cassette. If anybody else is or has used the new "V" grooved ones let me know how its going with them. Hope this can help someone else out.
