I got the code to change plugs - I did this on 2006 odyssey and recall it was about 1 hour job and not too easy (only 1 hurt knuckle) so I figure I will do this one too (I think the dealer wants over $300 for this?). I will not buy plugs from Amazon because too many people say too many sellers sell fake ones - so I looked online for replacements. I found on Rockauto that the OEM iridium plugs are about $12.50 each (about half of what Autozone / Advance Auto charges locally). However, Rockauto is selling the Ruthinium plug for only about $8 each. I thought they were supposed to be more expensive?? I am fine sticking with OEM plugs for the $12, but if the supposedly more expensive plugs that are now used by the Manufacturer are less ... would it make sense to just use them? I don't care if they last 200k vs 100k (probably will not have this for another 100k miles anyway) but is there any risk to performance by going with Ruthenium? Any opinions?

agreed...not sure why the OEM plugs are more...

I have the ruthenium in 3 of my vehicles, including the ody.

no issues at all, and I want to do the 200k challenge with them, have the old iridium's on hand for backup.

Sometimes RockAuto has limited-time deals. I've gotten "performance" rotors for $12 a piece and some Mevotech Terrain Tough heavy duty ball joints for $8 a piece. The deals disappear without notice.

I have also seen the OEM plugs much cheaper on Rock Auto. Don't forget to use the discount code for the Odyclub.
