    I want to try this Pulstar but I dislike the nickel material. I ended up ordering the Brisk Evo+ instead as my stock spare. Just hoping this will be delivered soonest as I am using freight forwarding services for the purchase.

    After just over 10k miles, the plugs failed. It started misfiring badly when I left work, with the CEL flashing for #1 cylinder misfire. Turns out, the ceramic insulator tips were broken on two of the three plugs, and one was bad enough to start misfiring. Had to have my roommates come out with my tools and OEM plugs so I could swap them to get home.

    Emailed Pulstar, and the founder replied VERY quickly, so we'll see what they do. I might go ahead and mail them back to them for further examination.

    The gaps had grown dramatically within the 10k mile period, all the way out to 0.050 on the undamaged plug. I'm actually shocked because they use a material they claim is super hard and lasts a long time. The center electrodes wore faster on the edge closest to the ground electrode.

    I had doubts on the Inconel material which the electrode is made of. Is it better than Platinum?

    I would never use those. NGK/Denso for me in any "foreign " "Asian" car I've ever owned.
