High Power Beru Spark plug original replacement for the Cooper.

In case of multivalve technology, lean burn or direct injection, the flow conditions in the combustion chamber require reliable mixture ignition and optimal cold starting behaviour. BERU spark plugs were specially designed for these special requirements. Where the burn-off resistance and ignition reliability need to be very high, automobile manufacturers such as BMW, Peugeot and Porsche use BERU spark plugs with platinum electrodes.

Technical Features

* Centre and, if required, ground electrodes made of special materials, platinum for extremely high resistance to erosion
* Optimal, environmentally friendly combustion: saves fuel and protects the catalytic converter
* Long life, high dependability
* Good cold starting properties
* Excellent mixture access
* First equipment quality

BERU Platinum — the special spark plug: Electrodes with platinum armouring ensure an extremely high burn-off resistance.

Tightening Torque: 23 +3 Nm or 17+2 ft-lb
Heat Range: 6

As modern engines become more efficient and compact, engine components such as Spark Plugs are required to become smaller too. NGK have recognised this and assisted by developing Bi-Hex Spark Plugs.

Traditionally, Spark Plugs have been designed with a hexagonal socket style. The Bi-Hex design provides increased strength compared to a traditional hexagonal design, allowing for a more compact spark plug without compromising strength requirements.

See the Professional Grade Bi-Hex Spart Plug Socket here.

See NME3010 for 2002 - 2006 R50 / R53 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Hatchback, and 2005 - 2008 R52 MINI Convertibles Spark Plugs.
