    There's no need for iridium plugs for the V6... I'd just go to Toyota and buy OEM plugs. I'm on my third set now of OEM plugs.

    Camelback will run sales every so often but don't have a standing discount. Their prices are typically much cheaper than other dealerships though. They have pre-assembled care kits for the 15k and 30k service intervals.

    If you spend a couple more dollars on iridium plugs, you won't have to change them out every 30k miles. Iridium service interval is 100k. You can either waste your money or your time, what's more important? Almost all the autoparts stores around me stock the OEM Denso plugs for almost a dollar less than the dealer ship.

    Have you checked them at 30 - 40k miles? The iridium plugs have a service interval for the 4 banger, not the V6.

    I change my plugs at 40k mile intervals, 15 - 20 minutes every 2 years really isn't a big time commitment in my opinion.

    Checked the gap at 30k, and it was within spec. Also the electrode looked almost like it was new. I'm getting the same performance now as when I replaced them 50k miles ago.

    In two more years, when I reach 130k, we'll see how well they really worked.
