I live in a colder climate and opt to use 10W40 in my car. It's also what the manual recommends. As far as the best spark plugs, the car comes with Beru plugs from the factory. I'm using Bosch in my car and they're great. There can be a lot of opinions when it comes to the "best" so sticking to or close to the OEM parts is always best.

Welcome to the forum! You should post some pictures of your car
2001 Tiptronic S in Speed Yellow, currently ~65k miles.
Currently doing an IMS bearing and RMS replacement.
Also replacing the water pump, thermostat, venturi tube (I broke it), serpentine belt, washer pumps, AOS, spark plugs, oils, fluids, filters, etc, etc.

Its best to use synthetic for the temperature in your region. Bosch plugs are my favorite and Mobile 1 is my synthetic 0-40W in Denver.
