Platnium plugs

Is it ok to use Bosch platnium plugs in the M-class? If so, what is the correct gap?

Thanks....

I believe they are like all other M112 V6's and are supposed to run on platinum plugs.

Gillybenztech moderates the ML, G-wagen, and Unimog forum, and I would probably repost this over there.

I believe that the ML320, ML430 and ML500 all take Bosch F 8 DPER plugs, 2 per cylinder, $6.03/ea. from FastLane.

Check your owner's manual for gap but I suspect they will come with the correct gap.

Good point. I completely forgot.

I ran platinums in my Maxima and in my G20, and I notice that platinum plugs always come pre-gapped.
