    Maybe it could be worthwhile starting a thread called "Regional Differences" or so...

    Looks like more confusion. This is what they say for the 1.0L:

    spark plug confusion

    Not to add to the confusion of this discussion, but sites like RockAuto.com suggest a different Denso plug for a 2017 Mirage (DENSO 3433 {#SK20HPRL11} Iridium Long Life, Gap .044). AutoZone NAPA, and others also direct 2017 Mirage owners to Denso part #3433, which is different than a Denso IKH16TT.

    Whereas RockAuto list 6 different types of Iridium plug options for a 2015 Mirage, & a number of NGK & Denso plugs are listed.

    Pulling plugs you are happy with and replacing them with the same may be the best option.

    Denso 3433 SK20HPR-L11 Iridium Long Life Plug has a bigger 0.7mm Iridium Tipped Center Electrode

    IMHO we should be more concerned with the correct Heat range rather than with the so many choices of plugs having different center electrode sizes.

    A few MPH members even used a colder NGK 1483 LFR6CGP platinum plug which is cheaper and reported better performance than the stock iridiums [at least in our country].

    must be readily available at most local auto supplies I suppose. Naimaraiko says in the local forum he bought his plugs @ Mandaluyong Auto supply Shaw Blvd Mandaluyong near JRU, while rabbai who's based in Bacolod presumably bought his thereat.
