Spark plug wires. Save some money while you can

Post by KiwiDave » Wed Dec 18, 2019 10:55 pm

I found a set made by Formula power. Six leads / 10mm / UK made and a choice of colors. Good specs, what's not to like?

Listed on EBay at £62.95. So far, so reasonable right? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/310930282627

While I was searching rdg , the same part number (FP195) is also listed for Saab 90/95/96/99 and lists our RX7 under compatible vehicles. So before hitting Buy it Now, I contacted the company just to double check. Does this Saab item fit my Rx7 as you suggest? (same part number so why should it not?)

Well, the answer was yes and they would relieve me of just £54.95 delivered to my door in Black, Blue or Red. :thumbup: :clap:

Needless to say, I took that deal. Here is is here ... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Saab-90-95-9 ... Sw9N1VxKwh

You can thank me later h:

Same part number so 2 coil leads. Listing specifically states '2 coil leads, six leads in set'. Just fitted to my car this afternoon. it's all good Derek.

Those NGK items are good leads. I've had them on my car for a couple years. th: I'm trying something a bit better this time and I didn't want to pay Magnecor money.
