Anyone tried these yet? I was just looking at them online the other night. I've already got an extra set of platinum plugs for my Ford Escort and won't need a new set of plugs in the Versa for a few years but was just wondering if there's any advantage to these or not. Personally I've had very good results using Bosch platinum for the past 25 years or so. I think every set of platinum plugs I've used has gone 100-125K miles and wasn't missing when I changed them. I just changed them because I felt guilty about leaving in for so long. The extra's I've got for the Escort I bought one time when I was placing an order with Rock Auto, I think I paid something like $ .75 a plug so unless there's a great advantage to the Ruthenium I don't think I'll be buying them at $9-10 each. If they'd give double the life in the Versa I might consider them since half the electrical connectors, half the vacuum lines on the engine, the intake, and throttle body have to come off on it to change plugs. The Versa has Iridium in it now and is the first set of Iridium I've ever used. There's no sense in any manufacturer making a car that has to have half the engine disassembled to change spark plugs but Nissan did it.
