Shopping around for NGK 6994 spark plugs. Looking on AZ and AAP, they are $10/ea : https://www.autozone.com/ignition-tune-u...plug/441325_0_0

While same plug can be had for for less than $6/ea : https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-pcs-Acura-Honda-V6-Accord-MDX-TL-NGK-Laser-Iridium-Spark-Plugs-IZFR6K11-6994/182896656127?epid=656533098&hash=item2a957d7eff:g:BzcAAOSwH3haCQkQ&vxp=mtr

Even RA is selling them around $9, why such a huge difference?

Google fake NGK spark plugs. I would buy them locally from a trusted source.

Unbelievable what they will knock off. Walbro pumps and ebay injectors are another one.

The 3 AAP stores I've dealt with are good.
Bergenfield, NJ
New Milford, CT
Ticonderoga, NY
Good, personalized service but not always the place for timely delivery of foreign car parts.

I got my Iridium NGK's from AutoZone with a nice discount applied.

Definitely be aware counterfeit plugs -
if you have an Engine like my SOHC Ford 4.6,
it isn't a job you would like to do twice.

I recently purchased (4) NGK 6994 from Amazon for $24 and some change knowing nothing about the fakes being around. I wonder what the chances of them being fakes are.

Curious, how did you buy them for $24 and from AZ they are going to be legit!

At least, I hope so? smile

I usually get my NGK plugs at NAPA. No fakes there.

i have to update.. I did buy NGK plugs (for the civic) at Amazon. It was sold/shipped by Amazon. So I don't think Amazon itself is selling fakes. The plugs look exactly like what I'd expect down to every marking. They're real NGK's.. I would stay away from the independent sellers though.
