SPARK PLUG WIRES??

I am looking into upgrading my spark plug wires. I purchased a set from autozone a while back, and the seemed pretty cheap in quality. They were only like $40. I was wondering if the BOSH set would be a little better, or do they offer a thicker set (8mm-9mm)anywhere else??

True, most of your online stores like autopartswarehouse, partsgeek, etc have them for around $70.

Magnacore...but if you're not happy about spending $97 for a set of wires then don't even look at magnacores.

How about a high quality cap & rotor? Gold plated perhaps?

Which Magnacore are you quoting the price for? I priced the 8.5mm and they were $ 185.00. But you're definitely right..these are awesome plug wires. I've also used Taylor wires with great success as well.
