Ordered up a set of Cobalts from Moss and got them installed.. Super simple as always, or at least when I put the Magnecore wires on at about 32K miles.
Huge difference. If I was paying attention and thinking straight, I would have replaced the plug wires when I replaced the plugs. Let this be a note to you, the owner of a MINI Cooper coming up to the 120K mile mark. Get them both at the same time. You’ll be glad you did.
I think I mentioned this a long time ago, but the reason for the switch to higher quality, aftermarket plug wires was because after I installed the K & N Typhoon intake, I thought she ran just a little rough. Barely noticeable in fact, but I could tell something just wasn’t quite right. So I swapped wires and everything smoothed right out. Or at least I think it did.
BTW, Moss MINI has a great price on the plugs. You know, just in case the parts desk at your dealer wants to charge you $40 for each one.
