Default NGK Iridium SPARK PLUGS?

I was thinking of Buying a set of NGK iridium spark plugs for my 93' bonneville SE non SC. Are These GOOD FOR OUR BONNEVILLES! Ive read
in previous topics of people using BOSCH triple PLatimums and getting poor results. Will i get the same poor results with the NGK PLUGS? Has anyone had any experience with these Plugs? if so what are the performance gains? THANKS.......

I'm running the NGK Iradiums and loving them. I had done a few different things at the same time I put them in (plugs, wires, filters, etc...) and I did notice a difference. I think it is worth the money for them.

I think that the prefered plug by most Bonneville owners wil either be the NGK or a good set of ACdelco'*.

my $0.02...

Just to remind people here.....NGK makes ALL the Spark Plugs for GM (AC Delco) BTW! Therefore the AC Delco Platinums ARE NGK'*!

Just a quick comment on plugs. Make sure, if you are running an MSD system, to stay away from any platinum plug.
