I'd try your local auto parts stores. No shipping charges. Wherever you buy them, make sure the gap is .040in.

You can adjust them yourself, I normally (if they need adjusted) tap the metal tang part closer than necessary and then carefully bend the tang to the correct gap.

Nothing is wrong with Bosch. I just wasn't about to list every available spark plug that would fit the PT. I just picked a couple of the ones that were named by owners that I happen to see.

I was just curious what young c thought was wrong. Maybe he knew something I did not.

I don't remember anyone saying anything bad about Bosch either but I wasn't going to argue so I just gave him some other names.

no I didn't hear anything really bad, but someone once said in a post I read something about they knew they shouldn't of got bosch, if someone were to ask me I'd honestly have no idea what to tell them. Hence why I made this post to get all your expert opinions!
