I've been using NGK BCPR7ES-11 for a long time with no difficulties.
I'm running Nordic stage 3+ and the pugs look perfect.

I just get a few sets from Nick at Genuine when I order something.

Yes, those are the ones. That or the hard driving option, PFR7H10.

In general, it blows me away that people complain about the price then use a cheaper plug... Really? You bought the high performance model, what do you expect? Yes you can put the lesser non-viggen 9-3 plugs in your car and it will "run fine" but why do you think Saab calls for them? Do you put in Arco 87 octane gas, too? GTFO.


These are the same tools that sue a car manufacturer for their tires wearing out after 10,000 miles on their PERFORMANCE CAR. End rant.

^-- I agree 100%. The plugs are $50 but they're high performance long life plugs. They probably last 3 times longer than the cheap ones so you don't lose too much in the end. Also, is the cost savings really worth the additional concerns? Do it right and be done with it...especially if it's a viggen.

Yay for buying the factory tuning kits at SOC '07 for $10 and getting an ECU + 4 plugs (plugs alone were $40+).

Here's the link to spark plug specs on GS's site. I would think Nick might just know which plugs to use.

After talking to my tuner the NGK BCPR7ES will do just fine since ill be changing them more often and at under $8 for 4 im happy with that.
