    $57 from VW each. Saw some online for ~$35-40, but that needed delivery of up to 2 weeks, needed them today , so all up $160 for 3 new plugs.

    From the looks of it, it needs an oil change urgently too, so will be doing that this weekend. I hate it when cars are neglected by their owners .... friends or not.

    I saw a video recently when the car was a write-off because a mechanic said it needed an engine, it turns out it only had low compression because of a broken valve spring, fixed on the car without the head off.
    VW wants $140 per coilpack, so $420 plus labour of perhaps an hour, say $500 all up. For once the stealer is cheaper ....
