What is the plug of choice now for a stock '08 9-3 Aero V6?

My daughter's '08 9-3 Aero V6 has about 25K miles on it but she has a failing coil. Unfortunately, it's not throwing a CEL yet but has all of the symptoms. She was just going to put all new coils and plugs in it. Personally, I'd just change the bad one but what do I know? Anyway, I've heard there was a change in spec for the plugs so what's the best choice?

I did all 6 coils and plugs on my wifes car at 60k, though there weren't any misfires. Coils, supposedly the aftermarket has updated the spec and they're much more reliable, GS sells them (where I got them), and they're cheaper. Haven't had any issues since, going on 80k now, and I have a bunch of spares just in case. Honestly, the job isn't as big a deal as it's made out to be, take your time with the vacuum lines on the rear bank and you'll be done in an hour.

Plugs, I was in the same boat as you, so I replaced with the OE part, 12788884, which was expensive but they're supposedly 100k plugs, which to me means they're good for another 60k.
