    Default Civic 8gen Spark Plugs query

    today i went to my mechanic to get the spark plugs of my civic 2008, inspected. 26k kms on the clock.
    he opened the plugs and said that plugs are finished. which was bit hard for me to digest cuz honda use NGK iridium plugs which they claim have a life of approx 100k kms. i am attaching few pixs i know they are not very clear but just check and tell me with your experience the conditions of the plugs and if they are really finished then tell me what might kill them so early.

    and secondly tellme which plugs should i install now, he constantly insisted me install autolite platinum plugs pixs attached. Civic 8gen Spark Plugs query -286820

    the tip seems to be perfect.Theses are only rusted which means good combustion.Simply clean them n re install.
