156 t-spark - sparkplugs

hi all,

here's an odd(ish) question for you all.
Do we have to use some type of special spark plugs specific to Alfa's? I have just been charged a fortune for them (although I am currently in Gibraltar so that could be the problem).

Nah, they are expensive because they last 60K miles.
Its not just Alfa's.

And there's 2 per cylinder: hence the name "twin spark"

and they are platinum - I went for Iridiums that were cheaper as on offer, but are a better plug, they are fab actually. There are various spark plug web sites where you can get them cheaper than dealer/factors - sparkplugs.co.uk I think was one
