Stay as far away from bosch plugs as you can. Mine disliked then and shattered the insulater after a whole 7 miles.

don't put them on, they just suck, we had bosh (the cool looking ones with the four little things on top) on our escort, and they didn't perform as good as motorcraft

My daughter had Bosch put in her car by a "tune up" shop. The Motorcrafts I put in it were changed every 24K. The Bosch plugs lasted 8K. The Shop I hang out at won't install Bosch plugs.
