Hi Long time....Ok Iridium Plugs!
They have plenty of advantages - they produce a better spark therefore less fouling and better engine efficiency and you can drive better.

They produce a better spark with a thinner electrode without sacrificing service life! Therefore the entire potential difference is concentrated at the thin tip of the electrode hence a much lower voltage is required for the spark to jump across.

Proper sparking will ensure smoother running, no misfiring, cooler engines and higher fuel efficiency and increased throttle response.

This is my EXPERIENCE too! Hope this helps.
