if you check the SP also look at the coil packs
thanks for the heads up! Sorry to hear about that bad experience you had on the freeway.. Hope it's driving nicely now.. Definitely will check the coil packs.. cheers.

You're correct. No signs of errors or rattles and I listen to the engine most of the time instead of using the hi-fi.. Engine sound healthy *knock on wood. According to the service tech, the spark plugs will operate at their peak until 95-100ks if the car is looked after and if maintenance isn't delayed, which is unquestionable in my case.

Easy and solved!!!!
Was just a general question to fellows here that love taking care of their cars as much as I do.

I'll change em over when I go to replace the wiper blades next week. JB4 is also tempting..
