Platinum is fine for a non-supercharged car.

My suggestion would be for an L27 or L36, Copper, Patinum, or Irridium.

For an L67, Copper or Irridium.

Bosch has a very low life-expectancy in our cars. That'* true for both plugs and O2 sensors. They're fine in some applications, but just not ours for some reason.
