Hiya! Just swapped out my plugs (bpr6es) after 1 year of use (approximately 3500 miles ago). I think they're saying the mixture is good, but thought it'd be worth checking with what people thought on here!

That’s pretty much what my plugs look like, so I’m saying they look good to me.

I think that spark plug is saying, "Only 3500 miles in a year? What's wrong with you? Get back in and drive somewhere!"

The porcelain insulator looks a bit pale but the plug looks sooty.  I blame the weather.

I've had a right bad batch of ngk's the last 3 months on different cars, wouldn't throw them away at all, box neatly and put in the toolkit in the boot

Thanks all! I'll leave the mix as is and put in the new plugs. See if I can put more than 3500 miles on this set!

Loads of fake ngk’s around over the past couple of years  you need to be really careful where you source them . I know quite a few people getting caught out .
