Want Bosch Platinum +4?

Man, I messed up. I got a Screamin’ Demon and Wires and installed it. Then I gapped the plugs to .065” like it says in the manual. Man it had power. Since it is a new car to me, I wanted to install new plugs. So I got Bosch Platinum +4 from Checker at 6.99 each online plus shipping or 10.99 in-store and wait 14 days. I installed them and it felt like stock. I e-mailed the manufacture and they said they use gap-able plugs to take advantage of a wider spark of that gap. Since the +4’s are not gappable there is no advantage to them. They said “We use Autolite platinum plugs (gap-able) on all of our test vehicles.” These are only 3.99 at Checker.
Since they are used I’m sure Checker will not take them back. So here is what I want to do. If someone wants the +4s, I will trade for a set of Autolite platinum plugs. I will be at the meeting on Saturday. They have been in since Monday and will be 5 days old, about 40 miles.
Info
2002 Ford Focus ZTS 2.0 Zetec.

Store will price match if not the same.
