Any recommendations on the brand of plugs? NGK runs about $14 each, Bosch and Autolite $7. Or OEM from the dealer?

I just put in a NGK IFR5E-11 on my Sportage V6 2006, it took me at least 6 hrs. I have some knowledge in mecanics but there was 3 f....ing screw, but any way, this NGK work fine, i´m just now measuring if fuel consumption improve, the displacement improve do....
the ngk cost me about $12.00 but now that I now how much time and effort it took me to change the pugls it´s worth to now they need to be changed every 60,000 miles

best regards!!

I ran nkg in my Infiniti Q45 for 100k each. I have 270k on it.
They ran flawlessly.

BOSCH are bad news in KIAs... They cause misfires and set CELs (error codes).
NGKs or Densos are both good in KIAs.
Stay away from specialty plugs (multi-tip) also.

I used Denso IK20 plugs on my 2007 2.0 liter Sportage. They are direct replacements for the original stock copper RC10YC4 Champions I found in the engine, and were worn out at only 26,000 miles! These Denso plugs are iridiums, and should last 100,000 miles.
