    I need to change a set of plugs in our 2003 Mini Cooper S.
    Realoem and Penske Parts are calling for NGK BKR6EQUP.
    Penske (Mini dealer) has them for $21.96 each.
    Advance Auto (OEM) has them for $2.59 each.

    Well, I decided to go with the plugs from Advance Auto this weekend.
    I just don't see spending an additional $19.00 EACH just to have the words MINI printed on a box that I'm only going to through away.

    nice. i always thought it was funny how much it cost to print logos on products that are already mass produced.

    Turned out I was wrong on the price.
    They where around $8.00 each, but still less than 1/2 the dealer even with a discount.
    Shhh! The car doesn't even know that the box didn't say MINI on them. :)
