    So did you choose OEM or NGK?

    Sounds like you need a tractor with a blade more than a new car!

    All I'll say is take care of your kidneys, folks.
    I dont know if I'd call it PTSD, but I dont look at people like others do.

    Back to the spark plugs, no mpg change, and seat of the pants is inconclusive. Maybe? I dunno. If anything, throttle tip in is better. Idle quality may be a touch smoother. I dunno. Certainly not worth my 20 minutes.

    My neighbor has a nice Holland and Holland tracked vehicle with rock rake. Buying him another bottle of Gentleman's Jack is more economical.

    OEM. I didn't want to dick around. If you cant afford to do it right, can you afford to do it twice?

    That is good, but it seems contested, regarding the CX5, and for a few bucks more, meh.

    Some people just don't like to be taken advantage of.

    Contested. Lol. Few bucks more?! Lol Couldn’t careless as a majority of my cars I change plugs at every oil change (no,please don’t do that for an CX-5).

    The only other plugs besides NGK in my arsenal are Autolite AR3910X where applicable.
