    I got some spark plugs from the dealer today. I've never changed plugs before so I don't know if this is a big deal or not. I'm hoping you could share your expertise:

    Out of the 6, this one was noticeably the worst:

    You can see the left is higher than the right side

    Same plug, the close side is bent to the left:

    Same plug, here you can see the bottom is bent to the left:

    Plug 2, here the left side of the top and bottom are slightly closer together:

    Please vote and explain!
