Hi all,

I'm trying to find the correct spark plugs for my 2007 1.1 C3.

Would the Bosch FR7DC+ fit?
All the spec looks correct etc

Found some for £8 on ebay, but thought I'd check before buying.

Is there a better plug around for similar money also?

Cheers

The spec from Citroen is FR7DE but Bosch haven't made that plug for a long time.
The replacement is the FR7DC+.

The platinum version is the FR7DP. I would recommend this one.

NGK does BKR6EIX which has an Iridium electrode. Warning: some people have said NGK plugs damage the coil pack!!

I recommend the BOSCH FR7DP because it reduces detonation and has a longer service life. It will NOT give better performance!!!
