Which spark plugs?

It's time to change the plugs in my 2005 V6. I read the manual's recommendation to use NGK or Denso - acknowledged. Has anyone had a good experience with another (premium) brand? I'm especially interested in Bosch, since I've used them in other vehicles. Thanks for your input (TWSS).

Well, I guess that's enough votes for me. Thanks for the advice, fellas.

Also, if its your first spark plug change on this truck, the left side of the engine has NGK plugs, and the right side has DENSO plugs. We don't know why. That is what Toyota decided to do.
^ Thanks, man. Glad I didn't have to figure that out half way through the job.

WAY! cheaper than the ones I first picked up at the Advanced store (Denso Iridium). I grabbed some stock one for alot of savings after taking the IR's back. I think the Toyota place charged me like $28 or something, I know it was not bad at all. Plus I have the benefit of knowing that they are the stock reccomended plugs. I say go stocker. Good luck!
