    VW Polo 2006 1.4 16v spark plugs

    Can anyone please clarify what spark plugs I need for a 2006 Polo 1.4 16v, engine code BKY. The online shops lists several different spark plugs from each manufacturer for this engine. How do I choose which one is the right one?

    (For example, Bosch FR78X, FR7HP33+, FR7LDC+, FR7HC+ are all listed by Halfords as "suitable" for this car. What's the difference between them and how do I choose?)

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    AD only shows NGK ZFR5P-G 0.9-1.1mm

    The different numbers on spark plugs can mean different heat ranges.

    Manufacturer: VW, Date(s) Used: 05/2004-06/2008, Model: Polo/Derby/Vento/Classic Polo/Classic, Engine Code: BKY, 55Kw, 75PS, 1.4 Ltr, 4 Cyls, Remarks: India ("IND"): 16v

    They are VW number 101 905 617 and would be NGK, bear in mind they are only 7.49 each from VW. The Bosch equivalent is FR 7 HC+ and as Keith says from NGK ZFR5P-G, I have to say I am a firm believer in following what VW say on ETKA and other engines codes are Bosch, Beru or even all three... sometimes they also list Champion.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Thanks for the advice. I looked mainly at Bosch, considering both car and spark plug would be German, but if VW themselves fit NGK as standard, then I'll go with that.
