Select heat grade to suit your engine and combustion temps, nothing else.
The plugs mentioned are not suitable for my car as i have a 9, So i either stick with the NGK IR ILFR7H plugs or change to the Denso ikh24 plugs.

I don't see my need to spend on race plugs when its just a road car, i would understand if i was going big power ect.

If it's a standardish engine, then use standard fit plugs as they are an excellent spec.
