Not, Bosch parts are good, for most stuff. Some people here have had bad experiences with their spark plugs, though. I'd stick with AC Delco.

I have good experiences with the AC-Delco rapidfires personaly.

The Bosch +4'* I was using worked great for the first year but detiorated rapidly after that. Not worth the almost 7 dollars US i paid for them.

I'll agree on the Bosch plugs. I've had nothing but trouble in any car with them. Don't waste your money on Splitfires, either. The NGK V-Max is a better, more reliable design, and costs less. If you don't stick with OEM, and wanna try something new, they're the plug to try.
