Whenever I've asked for a TDC sensor and a modified plug from our local dealer they usually say 'not needed mate'.Maybe they are being a little too honest........

I'm pretty sure that the sensors are the same so the old will fit in the new sensor,so they aren't really modified,just new and not dirty/corroded.I could be wrong though,but as I said,we've change a bucket load of these on all engine types and models and only once was a new plug provided.I remember it as the wires are colour coded but on the wrong way round,so you had join the wires to the opposite colour and not the same colour.

You've got to love the French.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
