They are correct. F8dc4 is the own plug.

Man my shipments from Auto Haus take 4 days!

Check out XXXX for dealer only type parts. They buy/ship right from Mercedes. They're usually cheap than the dealer. At least in my case.

gabzor, 12 years ago the Parts Department tech at our local MB dealer recommended Bosch F8DC4 spark plugs for our 104 engine. Based on their experience that engine performs best with that spark plug.

Lol thats where you get the dealer only parts. When you purchase parts from XXXX use the mercedes part numbers. You are actually buying from Mercedes Benz of some place in Illinois. I've bought a bunch of parts from them. Grommets, plastic trim bits that no on else sells. I bought some lift pads (the ones that go under the car at the jack points) and they had to ship them from Mercedes Germany.

Fastlane is fast too. Not only that they sponsor this forum. I try to support them when I can, but if I can't I don't post about on this site.
