He probably got iridiums. The Bonneville GXP plugs are Iridium plugs that are designed to run 100k miles.

That'* why they get the name stealership, for the GOOD deals they give. If I did not like the parts guys down there I would not go for them good deals. But the parts guys are the best at the local GM dealer so I just set up direct deposit and let the paycheck automatically transfer down there.

In all honesty, You can get iridums for less than $9 a pop.

NGK XI Iridiums (which I have used before with excellent results) are $6.88 each, Champion iridums are $6.40 each, NGK Premium Iridiums are $8.18 each, Denso Iridiums are $7.62 each, and ACDELCO Iridums (part number 41101), are...



drumroll...





$5.73 each. Rockauto.com. Go see for yourself. Yes that doesn't include shipping, but that also doesn't include the 5% discount code that is always available and you can find anywhere with a quick google search. If you bought the same ACDelco iridums that I provided the part number for, you got hosed. They call it a stealership because they rip you off.

Shipped price for 6 of those ACDelco iridums is $35.84 to my house in northern Illinois, which includes the 5% discount code.

My old plugs were Autolite Double Platniums. I have noticed the car starts quicker with the new Iridium plugs. Hopefully I'll get at least 10 more mpg to help pay for the cost of them! LOL

This. If you are really cheap, go find a 3500 in a junkyard. Came with them stock.
