I would like to know whether I can use
NGK 90223 spark plugs on my 2011 Mini Cooper R56 hardtop with ~50k miles.
The original spark plugs on it (
Beru 12ZR6SP2) seem to have worn and the engine is misfiring under load.
According to the Beru spec, they are supposed to have a spark gap of 1mm; the ones on my engine measure around 1.2-1.3mm though.
NGK 90223 has about a 0.8mm gap.
NGK 90223 is recommended by many auto-stores as an OEM replacement. Since the spark gap is different, I am not sure whether I can replace
Beru 12ZR6SP2 with
- Can I replace
- What is the Mini Cooper R56 recommended spark gap?
