In reading the past postings, I have seen that the Bosch
spark plug wires are generally not recommended. Also, the
Bremi wires are not as good as Beru wires. That leaves
the PVL wires that Fastlane offers. They say that they
are OE quality but are they comparable to Beru?
Also, while reading the post, I saw M.B. Doc say that the
wires rarely fail, only the ends. One of my ends is obviously
damaged, so I think that I will replace that end and see
if that is all I need. Of course, multiples of $8 might
be wasted if I eventually buy the wires anyway.

I agree with MB Doc, unless you have a fire all you ever have to replace is the resistor ends.

PVL wires are the worse, the ends are much worse than Bosch which are much worse than Beru. Beru are what the car came with. All of this is based upon looks. They all work.
