I'm on the same ones, although cant rem if they are 7 or 8.

NGK Iridium is a fair popular choice

Apparently copper plugs give the best spark, but dont last as long as the others.

I just use NGK grade 7 copper plugs, since my car gets serviced every 3-4k.

Not accordingly to NGK they had a show in Belfast castle many years ago about the different types.
Most modern motors won't run on copper cores

Where is the handiest place to buy sparkplugs guys?

Motorfactors say they'll be around 60 for the NGKs Iridium.

On eBay its nearly half that however there's some fake NGks doing the rounds, not sure I want to risk it for the sake of 25euro!

Spark plugs and oil are something I'm not fickle about, so I'm using crappy Bosche. Mostly because it comes with a $2 rebate to help with the death of copper prongs.

Uh huh, the MR2 is also specced to be driven by Japanese. I may have some Japanese bloodline knockoff in my veins, and I seem to be all over the road... and, wait...
