Default Fake NGK Sparkplugs on Amazon. Don't buy.

This is very interesting. I don't buy things off of Ebay, Amazon Prime, or Amazon. Too many fakes out there. NGK Iridiums have always been more than 10 dollars a plug. The older double Platinum's are closer to $20.

Any particular reason? Ebay used to be my main source for used parts until Facebook made it easier. I still use Ebay and check the listing often.

eBay is actually a pretty solid go-to for ordering people

I am probably the only one here that does this - but most of the time when I am on eBay or Amazon, I am exclusively looking for cheap chinese stuff.

be that as it may, and I'm sure there are legit dealers on ebay/etc., but if they are a reputable seller, I would much rather order direct from their website.

Ebay and Amazon have been fine for me, just have to not order stuff at prices that are too good to be true. Craigslist and Facebook I don't trust.
