  2. Oil on spark plug threads?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I swapped the spark plugs on my 2.0T to try and fix a misfire problem when accelerating from cruise condition, and I noticed that number 2 and 3 has engine oil on the threads. The plug holes are clean and I already changed the valve cover gasket 2 years ago, so I'm wondering what it might be...

    Spark plugs! I'm not wanting to start an argument but wondering about changing plugs: Just checked the plugs in my 99 9-3 B204i and expected NGKs but found Bosch Super 4s. Should I change them and what difference might I notice? The Bosch plugs are 4 electrode variety, clean but larger gap...
