Is it me being an uptight Brit or is that not rude?

Lost in Translation !

At Shigrg, try using the search function, keywords;
Tune-up, spark plugs, engine running problems, M116, M117, Idle problems.

The reason I included the problem keywords is that Bosch has not made a Non - Resistor spark plug in a very long time, without getting to carried away, in simpler terms.
The older cars do not like modern spark plugs.

Google; 739 14030 119
Denzo part number, your local auto parts store should be able to help.

Good point ‘Greeney’
I missed that part, probably all the grey hair on my head. I need to have things spelled out to me these days.
Then again, it just might be a new era, where people will text you 100 times on an item for sale but they will never take a personal phone call, I am talking about the younger generation here.

X2 again with ‘Greeney’ that would have been polite, perhaps a please and a thank you in advance would go a long way these days, speaking in general terms here.
