That pic of the used plugs I posted have only been in the car for around 9 months with less than 20k miles on them. That (HUGE) gap you see measures about 0.104 on all of them! One can almost think they're the original plugs with 120k miles on them, but they're not. Unfortunately, I put the remaining 4 plugs in from my eBay purchase last year. Hopefully I won't be replacing them in another 9 months [emoji20]
