I picked mine up at a local autofactors.

give them your reg, and it should be on the database.

i use iridium plugs too. they are a pain to change, so put good ones in there and you wont have to change them too often

I just checked my invoice from when i did the service last year. it says NGK BKR6EIX-11 Iridium
They only say dont re-gap iridium plugs because the electrode in the centre is very brittle.

you can re-gap them / check the gap if you want to, but dont squeeze feeler gauges in, you just have to be gentle!

theoretically.....

The bigger the gap the larger the spark = better combustion

The bigger the gap the more work the coil pack / ignition system has to work = possible premature failure

so its important to get it right with manufacturers recommendation.

however Iridium plugs are designed to put less strain on the ignition system hence they are pre-gapped, and the gap is significantly larger than standard

Checkout post 4 :crazy:

If you had got BKR6EIX (without the 11) they come gapped at approx 0.8mm to start with. :shrug:

Rallyman, I am quoting from the 2000 Subaru Forester manual:

"Spark Plugs: NGK BKR6E (without cat), Champion RC10YC4 (with catalyst), NGK PFR6B (turbo).

Spark Plug Gap: BKR6E (NGK):0.7-0.8mm (0.028-0.031 in.), RC10YC4 (Champion): 1.0-1.1mm (0.039-0.043 in.), PFR6B (NGK) 0.7-0.8mm (0.028-0.031 in.)"

Hope that helps ??

Mike
