I think it's time to replace the spark plugs, they must be almost 40,000 miles old.
On a long trip there was a misfire code too, which has cleared, but it would probably help to change them and lube the DI contacts.

Eeuro Has these plugs: They are $12.09 each

This matches with what this website recommends, which is to get NGKPFR6H-10 spark plugs.

Eeuro also has a hotter spark plug for hard driving, but I'm just using this car for regular driving,
not racing or anything, so it's probably not needed, right?http://eeuroparts.com/Parts/PartDetail.php?partCode=PFR7H10&partName=Spark+Plug

Going to go with the NGKPFR6H - 10 plugs from eeuro unless there is a better option.
Just wanted to double check since these cars apparently are really picky when it comes to spark plugs and I don't want to mess anything up.

Rock auto has the same NGKPFR6H - 10 spark plugs but for $9.25 a piece.
Hesitant to go to Autozone because people on this board seem to say their computer system is unreliable when it comes to this stuff.
Not sure about NAPA, haven't tried them.

I guess it'll come down to shipping costs unless NAPA can beat all of them.

I called a foreign auto store and they matched the number to the one I posted above, but he said it was platinum. Confused now. The one on rock auto with the matching number is platinum too. This is what is recommended by the other website I referenced. Why copper?

Saab was spec'ing platinum by the 9-3, but most guys find the copper runs better. You can use the platinum if you want.
