Hi, you get what you pay for mostly!
I have used Beru and NGK on all my vans with great success.
You need to test them out of the box though, to make sure they work!
It has been known that duff ones are out there!!

If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.

If you go on the ngk web site and get their stock number you can get a good price on ebay , i payed £22.50 with free p&p by doing it this way for my 2005 berlingo 2.0 hdi !

I will only fit Beru, we have had issues with every other make over the years.

Take it out, connect it to the battery with a jump lead whilst grounding it. If it glow red then its ok and if it doesn't its bolloxed.

Worked for me. New one would glow within a second and the old ones took almost 4 seconds
