I'm seeing this as a plug for 2006 Mitsubishi's

Also, a quick Amazon search says this does not fit a GTI


I think they’re suitable for 2 or 3 different makes/models, unfortunately the MK6 is not one of them!! modded euros lists them for several Gen 3 VAG group cars as well as google suggesting a couple of Japanese cars. https://www.moddedeuros.com/products...i-golf-r-jetta

As mentioned, how did you decide these were the right plugs? Was it a mistake on your part or did a parts place provide them as a match for your car?

I had something similar happen to me with my MINI a few years ago, although I was lucky. Went to my friends at the parts store & tell them I need plugs for my MINI Cooper S. He hands me a box of NGK's, I pay then head home.

I pulled put the first plug & compared it to the one of the new plugs. It had a longer reach, back to the parts store. Seems the listing was wrong, he cross referenced with another makers plug & came up with the correct number.

So always check your old plugs with the new ones before you install them & fire the engine up.

To the OP get a borescope & look before you proceed. I hope the head doesn't have to come off, but it might. Good luck.

Good news everyone!!! CRISIS AVERTED!!!!! So I got the fourth plug out with a very skinny long needle nose plier and some serious cursing. I called a bunch of different mechanics for advice. They said since I drove the car for 20mins while it was misfiring and no breakdown or smoke, it should be okay to vacuum out what I can and start it.
So I got to work pulling metal out with the magnet when I realized the pieces of metal inside the head I thought were from the tip of the electrode are just threads from the plug itself, because A they looked like thread pieces, B the threads on the plugs themselves are melted together at the tips C they were magnetic (the head isn't), and D they were just under the spark plug hole. I shopvacced with a makeshift chikfila straw attachment and alternated with the magnet. Then took a tip from the mechanic to crank the car without plugs and use a vacuum above the hole. Thankfully we didn't blow up the vacuum (the air it sucks in runs past and cools the hot engine). Also extremely convenient for me: my dad is a urologist so we inspected the head with an endoscope and didn't see any visible damage. So we put the old plugs in after cleaning them with WD40 (they went in surprisingly fine, except some trouble with plug 4).
Then attached the coils, said a prayer, and turned the ignition...Misfired for a few seconds and then ran like it should! Scanned the car, misfires and ignition coil failures showed (from cranking without the coils attached), cleared the codes and went for a drive: 30min in, no codes, no problems. Just came home from dinner and went flat out from 2nd to 5th. Butter smooth. I need to do another oil and filter change and buy the CORRECT new plugs. Whew sorry I just got to my computer you can't believe how excited I am to blurt all this out!! Might have a minor leak in plug 4 if anything everything honestly feels the way it should.. It certainly runs better than it did before the oil change. D Lesson learned. Don't be a dumbass like me.

This must have been a mistake on my part. I actually ordered these plugs a year or so ago and they've been sitting around until I hit 90,000miles and needed to do an oil change. I decided a long time ago to replace plugs every 45,000 miles so it was time. Maybe I ordered the plugs late at night and didn't realize it said MKVII rather than MKVI. It is only a letter difference after all.. Silly me

I may need to fix the threads in plug 4 though.. My buddy who is somewhat knowledgeable told me there is either a bronze plate fix or even a type of epoxy? Maybe I need to do a compression and leak test soon and have a certified mechanic give further suggestion.

Glad things are looking up for you. Make sure that the thread repair is a good one. Consult a competent mechanic if you don't want to tackle the job yourself.
