Default Colder Plugs for Baleno

I need to find colder plugs for my car in Bangalore. I would prefer NGK, Denso or any other reputed brand. Anybody has any idea where to find these?

Maruti does not stock colder plugs. I tried many accessory shops also to no avail. Please help

I dont think you should have any problems finding Platinum plugs or Iridiums (both are colder plugs) from NGK as they are widely available at tuner shops, ask other Bangy BHPians, they should help you with shops where they are available.

Question for All!

1.Do Iridium plugs require ignition coil and plug/ignition wires to be upgraded?
2. If yes then would it do any harm if they arnt changed?

Buddy,

Use Bosch Platina plugs, they are the best cold plugs you can get and is available at J K Automobiles - J C Road.

Set of 4 plugs cost around Rs.1450/-.

Just platinum or iridium plugs will not solve my issue. And they are not colder just because they are iridium plugs.

Riju, I checked Ozzone and they do have NGK iridium but its a stock replacement for Baleno.

Kutlee, I am looking at one step colder range for the baleno.

Pavan, will check with JK. Do you know the rating for Bosch Platina?

Bosch Platina are platinum plugs and i dont think you can get any plugs colder than Iridiums and they do come at a standard rating dont they?

1. NO
2. -NA-

Iridiums are available in so many places. Try Hot Tracks on residency road to start with.

None of the cars in India (as far as I know) comes with iridiums/platinum plugs so the question of stock replacement is out!

Just buy the NGK BKR9E (Iridiums) and stay happyyy

The Wolf: I did not find NGK BKR9E when i checked. They will be too cold for me. You cannot just go up so many heat ranges and stay happy.

One step high should be available i thought. Just check spare shops. They might have a piece by accident!

Rocam, my engine is not stock. It needs colder plugs because of high compression, performance cam and other mods. To add to my woes car is running lean. I would not waste my time/money running after colder plugs for a stock engine.

I am not fancied by iridium plugs. If I can find normal plugs in step 2 range that will do fine.

Rahul, I have smsed you.

Looks like this is gonna be an expensive affair.

No plugs is not the answer. Standalone ECU is following with tuned AFRs. Still I need plugs.
