And of course everything on the web is true ... shock, horror, what it isn't?Hi yes read it on the web ....
Hi yes this is what I read at the moment my screen is reading engine management fault see dealer had a diagnostic it came up with code 3003 I think number 3 cylinder fault so I am going to change plugs first then coil hope this sorts it.Do not know about the ECU reading what plugs are fitted but I did read once about the T SPARK engine not runing well on BOSCH plugs. So when I had my 156 T SPARK 1.8 I always used OEM NGK plugs and had no problems.
I also have a BMW MINI and the OEM plugs for that are also NGK Platinum. I fitted BOSCH plugs to that once and had problems the car did not run well on tick over and the EML came on. Changed back to new NGK Platinum plugs at 2x the cost of the BOSCH ones and the car run fine.
So I would say stay with the NGK plugs.
