Sounds to me like we could organise a group buy on these, most of us need them on a regular basis?

If we can get 10 or so people ordering, I reckon we could drive down the price nicely.

Any interest from the cheap seats?

Just spotted this info. Bought the factory service manual 5years ago for my 3rd gen (UK), and got a pile of ammendments with it. Never really bothered looking through them before, but glanced through them tonight, for something else.  With the comments above about Mazda having must have made a mistake with their recomendations for spark plugs, seems they did!
2 of the extra pages that came with the manual, are from a Mazda technical bulletin (FD/036), which states that the recomended plugs in the UK car should be:
BUR8EQP - Leading,
BUR9EQP - Trailing.

This info is repeated on pages G3 and TD5.

So it seems they finally caught on that there was a mistake in the UK manual, but it took them until 1998 to issue the technical correction! Better late than never, I suppose!

These people claim to sell BUR7EQP and BUR9EQP at sensible prices.
