Glow Plugs

Has anyone used the Bosch or champion glow plugs ... I have read that the champion plugs are really good and they get hotter quicker and all these fantastic things but I was wondering if anyone has used them and seen any better performance as far as cold starts and all of that fun stuff ... And please dont just come and say it's all crap just get the oem replacements I would like a valid opinion or review on these plugs not a bash of any above spec glow plugs ... These are the only 2 that my local napa has in stock and I need them really bad so I cant wait for the oem replacement ones hence the question

I have used the Bosch, Champion etc.... none of them last like the Beru's. Beru's are the only plugs I recommend, and to be honest the Bosch were the worse!! But hey it's your truck feel free to use what you feel is right for you.

Crap ... That's good to hear that the cheaper ones are better but now I have to wait or check the other places around ... Thanks for the quick response ... The main reason I was asking was because I'm having real chitty starts in the morning so I've gotta get gps cus one I know is bad ... Hopefully some other store has the berus

DONT USE CHAMPION THEY ARE JUNK! sorry im just dealing with this now. i was in a bind last year so i replaced mine with champions and now im replacing them again. i ran an ohms test and got 0 resistance on all 8.... just what i wanted.

i have always heard to replace them with the ones that are made in Germany. it will say germany on the side of the plug.

Thanks guys ... The reason I was I dick of sorts in the first post is because usually crap like this turns into no valid thoughts and just a pile of rants ... But thanks for the input I'm deff going to look for te berus and deal with these starts for a while if it means getting the right plugs

in all honesty i would stay away. i have not personally used autolites but since glow plugs do not have an infinite life span. i think you will save more money buying good plugs the first time so your not replacing them every year. like i am right now
