9s Platinum 0000-18-N3A1 is 6.90 USD @ mazdacomp

9s copper N342-18-110 is 8.45 USD @ mazdacomp



That's weird... That or FC parts are seriously being phased out now.

It is 16 CDN+tax a plug here from mazda dealership. You got your local parts store for them they give you a funny look and ask you to repeat your query.



So for 6.90 USD they are a steal to me. 15 CDN + tax (14%) is roughly 15 USD a plug (exchange rate is about 1 cdn = 0.85 USD)

0000-18-n342 - $5.60

Mike what are those? FD 9s?



In canada, mazda sells the spark plugs in packages of 4. In the package is two 7s and two 9s for leading and trailing. The dealerships can not get single 9s or single 7s anymore from Mazda Canada. And they dont' want to place an order from the Mazda USA warehouse. They only do that if I start requesting weird non maintance parts they haven't been in stock in the Canada warehouses for years. And one box of 4 plugs is something like 60 CDN now.

i dunno exactly why they do this but if you look up the part number, you get n342-18-110, and mazdausa superceeds em to 0000-18-n342, same part, same box, different price, different number.



i think the 0000 ones from from ngk directly, and the "real" part numbers came from mazda japan
