Sparkplugs for 500E

Time to change plugs. I did a search in this forum and the consensus seems to be to stick with the Bosch Super Plug. My manual calls for "F9 DCO". I tried to find those, but everybody so far refers me to either the "2" or the "+4" plugs. Even the Bosch USA web site does not list the Super. Do I go to the 2 electrode Bosch plugs or the single electrode variety made by a different manufacturer (Champion, NGK, etc.)?
Any leads out there for the Bosch Super plugs and if not , which of the alternatives are recommended??

Thanks for your responses!!

Wolfgang

As you probably realize, this is one of those 'controversial' subjects on this board.
I have had excellent results with Bosch +4s on a wide variety of vehicles.
As a bonus, they do not need to be gapped, nor do they lose their gap over time.
They also seem to stay cleaner than standard plugs, even on known 'oil burners'.

call phil at the fastlane/partsshop on this site. I am sure he can help you source them.

WRM,
I am located in Yorba Linda, CA. I checked the usual suspects: PepBoys, Autozone, etc.

I appreciate everybody's replies!
