2007 1.6 16v petrol spark plugs?
#1
what spark plugs are recommended, I checked on gsf and there seem to be either bosch  or denso ,
the latter are 2 types one which have a Denso special coated electrode ,and denso iridium a lot more expensive. A bit confused as to which ones to get.

Don't skimp on spark plugs. Buy the most expensive! I use these on mine and I'm flying...

Buy from reputable places ensure holograms are in place

Too many NGK fake spark and glow plugs going round in eBay and Amazon for me to take chances with that. Have seen some fake glow plugs come out with out their tips. I'd imagine similar could happen to fake spark plugs...

Not very good for the top of your piston that.

Yes & I would advise removal & retreat every year to prevent seizure.

Despite trying fancy Iridium and Platinum plugs in cars I owned years back I never really noticed any difference between them and a standard plug.

Iridium and Platinum plugs are specified as their electrode is less prone to erosion so they give a longer service life, if you change the plugs at a lower mileage they're not really necessary and a standard plug will do the job.

Yes a LIGHT smear of copper grease won't hurt.
