Your comment pales in comparison to the opinion posted directly after it. If you take the time to search our archives, you will find countless tales of early failures of Bosch plugs.

Do they mean nothing? Or might your very open mind discover some truth to the postings......time will tell.

There are 3 of them from a quick Google search. You haven't been here long, but if you spent anytime looking around, you should know by now that the intent of this forum is to give the people reliable advice, and to put their hard earned money to the best use. Recommendations against a product are not taken lightly. The investigations have been done here regarding the Bosch plugs. If you don't believe that their plugs do not work well with the waste spark system, due to metal transfer because of the polarity changes, due what the guy did in the first link.....call Bosch and ask them yourself.

I read them and understand you are REALLY mad when someone dosent go along with you, and my question stands is there any credible info that says Bosch Platinums are no good.

Before you go nutts and think I am attacking you personally, I AM NOT! I would just like to know of a real test that confirms what you say (not hearsay or someones opinion)

I looked and couldnt find one, please direct me to one.

Who the heck is davespeed and tnpartsguy?

Unless the manufacturer is not credible - I think you should have your answer.

Did you read any of the links? Read the first one...there'* even a phone number for Bosch posted there that you can call. Call them, ask the question, and report back with what you find out.

I read the posts and you are missing my point, who are those guys? why should I believe them?
a phone #, to what? to some poor out sourced guy (or girl) answering questions with no mechanical experience?

Please show me a link to someone who matters (a technician or company representative) that says Bosch Plugs are The Devil or some of the other things that you have been writing about them.

The sad part is the original Poster has them and even though they work fine in his car (he has a bad coil) you guys have him thinking they are no good.

PS: and so you think I am not just too lazy to look (I have been googleing for the last hour) I will give the first person who finds me a link where someone of importance (from Bosch or GM) says the plugs are garbage or unsuitable $10 by PayPal instantly.

The one who is apparently missing the point is you. This is what that link said.

So, give them a call. Don't like that number...find your own and call it. We've already done our investigation. Sounds like you, like doubting Thomas, need even more evidence...so, do the research yourself, and report back. Until then, it'* all an exercise in futility, as you will remain unconvinced.

LOL, now thats a stretch. The reporters work for some agency and are accountable to it for what they say.

And for the record Will I like ur work and am in no way trying to **** you off but there is NO real testing that shows the plugs to be defective. If you find it I will up my reward to $20.
