Punto MK2 1.2 16v ELX HELP!!

Can NGK Iridium spark plugs be used in this car?

All I can find are for 1.2 8V.

If not what is a good alternative spark plug?

I don't have any problems with the standard ones. Just that I wanted to know if there any higher performance ones that anyone would recommend.

A friend of mine recently found NGK or Denso iridium sparks.These sparks are useful when the compression of your engine is higher than normal.For example if you change the Air/Fuel.If you haven't got such a problem then use the standard NGK sparks.

I need new spark plugs, mine have had their day. A friend has Iridium NGK ones in his Punto MK2 (and he reckons it makes a diff) . But I went to a few places and they looked up spark plugs for my car and Iridium ones weren't on the list for my car for NGK, just bog standard. So if I need new ones, might as well get the best.
