  • Which ignition wire to get

    Hello fellas I did use my search button and found limited info. Any recommendations of which vendor to go with when I replace my ignition wires? Thanks.

    Most of the vendors S14 wire sets are all built by the same place, Kensington, so buy where you get the best price. For a stock replacement the Kensington 8mm wire set is a good set for the price and they come in various color and end options.

    I believe VAC has theirs built by Moroso.
    If they are using the correct Beru ends, I'd probably go that way if I were buying a race wire set. I always had great results with Moroso plug wires.

    There are also the Magnacore, which a lot of people have used with success but I don't think they used the Beru ends which to me was important so I always stayed away from Magnacore S14 wires.

        They are the Kensington wire sets.
        I think both Turner and Bimmerworld among others re-sell the Kensingtons.
        Good wires, real Beru ends.

        I had Kensington do some custom work for me a while back.
        They always delivered a quality product.

          Does Kensington sell directly at a lower cost ?

              Last time I checked (a while back) their prices for the off the shelf items were slightly higher to protect their dealers unless you did a buy in of some kind to become a dealer.

                  sparky wires

                  They all seem to come in at about the same price. Seems like VAC products get a lot of mention so I went with them. Thanks everyone for weighing in.
