    I got a quote from DHM for my 30K that was about half of what SOSVM wanted, and I know they would have done a better job. I ended up doing most of the work myself, then just had Oil Stop do the fluids.

    The plugs ran me about $30 shipped from sparkplugs.com, but I had a 10% discount code that I googled and found on some PTCruiser forum. I doubt you'll be able to find them at any of the local parts shops though, I checked with most of them when I did mine.

    Sissy. I did mine and Noelle's RS at the same time (hers was the guinea pig). The RS was actually easier, since the engine sits about 1/2 inch higher so the plugs aren't blocked by the frame. I think the biggest pain with my car was the washer fluid bottle. I had to siphon all the fluid out of it because as soon as you pull the hoses off the pumps it starts spilling all over. I can't believe all the crap you have to pull out of the engine bay to get to those suckers!

    Luckily the Iridium plugs last longer than the platinums, which are technically a 60K service item.

    Oh yeah, $40.30 shipped from Sparkplugs.com.

    NGK BKR7EIX is one step colder, iridium. Recommended by PDX Tuning for stage 2, most definitely for a stage 4.

    Yeah, PDX recommends them for stage2... they make it a much safer tune (less detonation) The biggest problem I had was getting the dang coil packs to go back on and seat correctly. My hands were just too big... BLAH
