W210 Spark Plugs

Hi, I have a 98 E320. I was thinking of replacing the spark plugs with the newer Bosch Fusion (18-3768-6) or Bosch Platinum +4 (18-3751-4). There is no gapping required on either one. Any thumbs up or down?
I am leaning on the Fusion. Am I leaning too much?
Thanks.

Welcome to the forum. Please take a minute to click the user cp link and complete your bw profile re: vehicle and location as that is often useful information.

If you scroll down the main page you'll see a forum that is dedicated to your car, the W210. This is the general forum, which is okay, but you're likely to get more focused information in the forum specific to your car.

I have the same model, just a bit newer. The replacement interval for your plugs is 100,000 miles, so if you're not there yet and it's running fine, forget them. When the time does come there is a DIY in the 210 forum you can reference for help and lots of discussions about proper plugs. That said, most folks say to stay with the stock plugs (and avoid the multi-electrode variety), besides which they're cheaper. So yeah, I'd say you're probably leaning too much.

Take care and enjoy the ride,
Greg

You would do well to stick with the stock OEM plugs.
