94 e320 plugs and wires? recommendations on parts

I do need to get new wires. Several of the plug ends had some rubber missing where it met the plug. Probably oil corrosion of the rubber that seep by the valve cover gaskets into the wells. I'll change the plugs at the same time.

Any suggestions on plugs and wires? Bosch?

I ask because my other cars are Miatas and they love NGK wires and plugs...anything else and they get upset.

I would buy only Mercedes original wires, whether you buy them from Fastlane or the dealer.

Original wires are made of solid copper and are expensive. This is why they rarely need replacement.

Aftermarket wires, even Bosch, are a silicone / copper blend, which is why they are much cheaper.
