hhmm mines about 800 and even higher with the a/c on obviously for the compressor. I guess ill take one for the team and buy the ngk and see how it works out and report back.

My tach usually shows in the area of 750. No idea which one is more accurate. But 800 at idle definitely sounds reasonable

Your car jerks around when going into gear at 800RPM? Your tach can't be right. Mine only jerks around at 1500RPM+. Smooth engagement below that.
