    Hi,
    Looking through all the threads here but still trying to find a definitive answer..
    Anyone got an idea of the best quality/ "AFFORDABLE" glow plugs. Just had a rebuild and fitted Sh**part new plugs. Mistake.. !! Worse than before unless I turn the ignition on three times, then off we go. Wish I had kept the old ones now but looking for advice on a good brand to fit back in.
    Answers on a postcard.

    Beru & NGK are good, there are others but I remember the names at the moment, Beware of fakes on Ebay.

    I remember NGK spark plugs being quality. I'll go to our local factors to make sure of genuine make. Many thanks

    I did indeed. Beru are best. Don't f*ck about, just go and get them! If you ring their London number they're usually very helpful and give you the discount of the day.

    Bought 6 Bosch plugs yesterday, just over a tenner each from our local factors, ( to make sure I could open the packet there and then to confirm genuine parts) I am sure I can see the glow through the bonnet when I switch on now. Fires up before the engine does one turn now. Thanks everybody for the advice once again.
