I am looking to service my 1.6 Ti-VCT Focus shortly and want to know which parts people think are best.

 

The only ones I think can have any difference in them are; air filter, oil and spark plugs.

 

I am looking for a panel air filter as an induction kit on this car will kill it. I was looking at Pipercross and K & N.

 

As for oil I don't have a clue so any ideas are welcome.

 

Spark plugs I was looking at iridium ones but heard they may knacker the coil pack for some reason.

 

Any one have views on this?

I have used K & N before.

 

They seem to generally be the more accepted 3rd party air filter manufacturer.

 

I think the biggest bonus is their warranty and the fact they will defend you against manufacturers trying to void your warranty by using their parts.
