Spark Plugs...
 
OK... I have a 2005 Mini One which has had the Bluefin remap to make it run like a Cooper.

I'm using this Mini to learn about maintenance etc. and will transfer many things I buy and install now to my next Mini R50/R52/R53. I'm looking to pick up a MSD Ignition unit in the near future and have already picked up some new Formula Power ignition leads - which was worth doing anyway considering mine were 12 years old stock leads.

I now want to replace my spark plugs but am being given conflicting information. I was considering the Denso IK20, but the guy at my local garage suggested the IK22. I have looked online and the difference between the two spark plugs is their gap(?). Price is a minor factor as I tend to see the IK22 a touch cheaper than the IK20.

Assuming I'd like to purchase Denso spark plugs, which will be the best to buy for my Mini?

NGK BCR8ES are the plug you need.

Bought a set of four today and installed them with my Formula Power leads. Thank you for your advice.
