    I like paying $12 for a SET of 4 plugs. That way I can replace them every 5K miles and have fresh plugs in place with nice sharp edges and controlled spark. HOWEVER, the stock plugs will last 20K easily and perform just fine.

    Other plugs will work fine too and the benefits are maybe not even measurable though maybe some will notice?

    I had two times in the past a NGK spark plug which was defective and this year two spark plugs on four were defective at the restart of 2019, I lost confidence and I installed Nippon Denso. I do not understand why I have experienced so many problems because I am meticulous during installation.

    Perhaps they weren't original ones but a Chinese copy of the NGK plugs. Google it, there are multiple ways of identifying fake plugs.
