i would recommend that you only use genuine ford, these are not too expensive either. a set will cost you about 10
There is also a guy on the forum who supplies genuine ford parts slightly discounted.

IT DEPENDS ON WHAT ENGINE & THE CC YOU HAVE M8 I.E 1.2 1.3 ETC

I WOULD GOTO HALFORDS N GET THEIR MANUAL FOR THE PLUGS & MAKE A NOTE OF THE NUMBER OF THE PLUG.
ALSO WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO PRICE UP FORDS ONES THAT WAY YOU CAN GET A PRICE COMPARISON.

I THINK I PAID ABOUT 30 A SET FROM MEMORY BUT THEY WERE TITANIUM ONES I SEEM TO RECALL.

5.33 for air filter.....as for postage cant find it on royal mail... 5.00 should cover the lot so the total would be 17.68 delivered. would need your chassis number just to confirm plugs if you did order.

ford genuine plugs are ngk plugs as they supply almost all the majors mazda ford volkswagen mercedes etc due to there long life iriduim/platinum plugs which are only meant to need changed every 100k thats why ford service schedule states 100k service to replace the plugs i only use ngk as its what ford specify
