Sparkplug cables frenzzy

I have to change my sparkplug cables. They offering me some Mecra and FACET cables but I would like NGK. Thing is that general importer of NGK for my country does not have cables for my 146 1.6TS and also that they never had it or imported it.
Strange thing for someone that call themselves "general importers"
Anyway, on NGK SITE
I found lists of cables that goes on various models of 146 and something is bothering me...
According to the catalog cables for my Alfa have RC-AR601 label
but strange thing is that 1,4TS engine have same cables like both 2,0 models RC-AR903
and 1,8TS have RC-AR204 cables, same as 1,7 boxer ?!?
Some error on site or ?!??
Does anyone knows difference between these cables (pictures are not available on site)
and can I use for my 1,6TS 16V engine cables other than RC-AR601???
Thank you

I can't see any reason why any of the TS engines should need different cables, but the boxer is of course completely different, so some error on the site, I guess.

There are differences between the CF2 and CF3 engines in the cable layout - early versions feed the secondary plug on the "paired" cylinder - ie coil pack on cylinder 1 feeds second plug on cylinder 4, cylinder 2 feeds secondary on cylinder 3, etc......On the CF3 engines the coil pack feeds the secondary plug on the same cylinder.

This may explain some of the differences?
