These are the OEM plugs with about 8K miles, and near half with turbo. Very nice.



I replaced with one step colder, since that's all I had sitting around, but from the looks of these plugs, they were right on the temp.

Actually it's preventative maintanence and good practice to change the plugs out early . You just never know when you'll get a bad batch. I've seen 2 plugs where the electrode actually fell off... and you know where it fell and probably have a good idea what became of thhose motors
