Bosch no longer lists plugs for 986

Needed to get new plugs. Went to the Bosch site and clicked on plugs. Entered info, 02 Boxster S. List of parts came up. Lots of sensors, brakes etc. no plugs. Did it two more times. No plugs came up. Went to local parts store sites to check (Autozone, O’Reilley, Pep Boys) none had Bosch plugs for the car. I saw that Pelican said that the +4 were no longer available. What happened to Bosch plugs for the car?

Bosch Plugs?

If Bosch plugs float your boat, you can still find them if you look.

I wouldn't go out of my way, tho. I just installed a set of Autolite iridium plugs in my 01 Boxster base. After the $3 per plug rebate, they cost me 90 cents each. So I'm going to give them a try for 10,000 miles or so.

I've had excellent service from Autolite in the past. Motorcraft too. I had a commercial duty Ford 1 ton van that got 90k out its first set of factory plugs.

I've had Japanese cars (Toyotas) since the mid 70's and have been very happy with Denso plugs and NGK, as well.

Bosch? Nah. Go to Rock auto and look up the plugs for you car. Be sure to claim your 5% discount. The Japanese really have their act together on plugs.
