I went to Canadian Tire the other day to get some new spark plugs, but when i got home to put them in, the plugs were tottaly different (the old ones were 3 prong and the bolt on them was bigger) and the wires would not fit on them properly. I went back and talked to a guy there, and he said that since I have the Golf imported from Europe, the plugs and wires are different than the VW's made in Mexico. Im just wondering, can I buy new performance wires for the Golf, and if I can, can I still buy new performance plugs? Will the car still run alright with these new plugs and wires?

hey,

I don't see a problem changing the wire, but from what I have understand ALL spark plugs are the same, the only diference is that some comes 5/16" and others 5/8" but in case that you need to get new wires there won't be a problem at all, like you are changing the wires go for 10.4mm and get BOSCH PLATINUM 4 ELECTRODES sparks.

Hope this help!!!
