Bosch has announced an exciting mail-in rebate program that offers substantial savings to customers for its OE Fine Wire family of spark plugs in 2013.

Continuing the theme, “the Gut Knows” from Bosch’s 2012 spark plug advertising campaign, the rebate targets do-it-yourselfers (DIYers) who believe that fixing something twice is one time too many.

“Customers that are looking for both high performance and long life have an excellent opportunity to get substantial savings on OE fine wire spark plugs that offer those benefits,” said Mark Wilkinson, Group Product Manager, Spark Plugs for Bosch.

The maximum rebate per customer on the Bosch Iridium is $32.00 for 16 plugs; on Bosch Platinum and Bosch Double Platinum it is $16.00 for 16 plugs.

According to Wilkinson, “Powerful new engines, especially those that use Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) and turbochargers, require OE-specified exact ‘spark projection,’ – the exact location of the spark in the combustion chamber – and special materials, to create the best spark and optimal performance.  All three spark plugs in the OE fine wire family – Bosch OE Fine Wire Iridium, OE Fine wire Platinum and OE Fine Wire Double Platinum – are designed to maintain correct spark projection for each application.”

“Furthermore, all three types of plugs are pre-gapped to ensure the correct gap setting, unlike many other plugs that require gapping. This increases the risk of damaging the center electrode tip and setting the gap incorrectly,” Wilkinson continued.

All Bosch OE fine wire plugs are backed by both a customer satisfaction guarantee as well as the industry’s only Professional Technician Warranty, which covers labor/repair costs for a period of one (1) year from the date of installation when installed by a certified repair shop, Wilkinson said.
