Quote from: UTn_boy on 17 May 2022, 07:24 PMI put a set of Beru on y 4.5 a few years ago. Within a year every one of the resistors in the connector (on the sparking plug) burned up and went open causing a miss. I currently only buy plug wires from Mercedes or Bremi-STI. Yes, the Mercedes wires are expensive....welcome to vintage Mercedes ownership. Bosch and Beru parts are bottom of the barrel now.....they're now considered "URO" brand territory by the majority of shops and people that do their own work.

I have a Bosch cap and coil made in Mexico, a Bosch rotor from Israel from memory, Beru leads made in Germany and NGK BP5ES spark plugs made in Japan. No problem.Sad to hear Beru has given people problems, mine are 14 years old and going good but that was a while ago, wonder if they outsourced? My issue is finding damn spark plugs with removable screw off terminals, still can't get a straight answer from NGK if their leads can fit normal plugs (fixed terminals)
