Bosch sucks, they'll crap out in about three months.

www.rockauto.com is your friend, order either a Delco or a Denso.

I've heard good things about them. I would most certainly use them in my own car.

cool, i got good feedback from the local GP club here, too. i tried to place an order for the denso one, but i messed up. i put in my address as the billing address because i was using a gift card. but i should have put in my parents address. now it did an auth. for 45 bucks, but did not go through on their website. i gotta wait till tomorrow before i can order it.

dammit! it did it again! i thought these "go anywhere" giftcards were cool until i tried to do an online transaction. i registered my card like they told me to, and it still did not go through. and the customer support people dont really speak english.

Rock Auto, IMO, has very fast and reliable service. I realize that some have had problems with them, but I've never had a problem with them, and I've been using them for a couple years
