I changed my spark plugs today at 25000 miles. I bought Bosch spark plugs because the auto parts store had no NGK and they were $1.97 a piece. The Bosch plugs were made in "Russia". First part I have seen that was made there.

Bosch is a great company and has great spark plugs and other fine parts! They are used in a lot more vehicles than VW's and Audi's. Just sayin' :yes1:

It's probably a matter of cheap labor. Just good management not government.

I am constantly astonished by how easily almost any topic under the sun can go careening wildly off into irrelevant political whining. My theory is that once someone retires they no longer have a water cooler to lean on and gripe loudly about anything and everything to anyone who passes within earshot, so they resort to using internet forums for the same purpose.

Thanks for plainly stating what so desperately needed to be said.

I rode about 25 miles with my new made in Russia, German spark plugs. I think I have 20 more HP and about 30% better MPG! Just funnin'... I can tell absolutely no change but at least it did not self-destruct.

Be careful! They may have tried to fluoridate your coolant reservoir while you weren't looking!
