Well, if Bosch lists a plug for the make /model/ year and engine, then it should work.
As I said before, platinum plugs where invented in response to longer change intervals, i.e. less electrode wear with platinum.
There may be some engines, that simply do not respond well to these plugs.
In my experience you can try different ones ( make, materials, etc. ) and stick with what ever works best for you.
Btw. I believe that european cars seem to have had a weak ignition system in the past. It appears, when most North American automakers were going with large gaps, 0.045 - 0.080", the europeans were still specifying small gaps like 0.028 - 0.032".
But who am I to say, my name isn't Bosch, or Champion, or Nippondenso, etc.
