You can DIY this in 20 minutes. If you are paying someone, have them put in a new set of genuine plugs too.

Yes its been raining in LA and yes my D90 which was built in one of the rainiest countries on the planet doesnt like a little water and has been sputtering all weekend. Why do i put up with this i dont know but anyway. Ron can i ask you why prefer genuine plugs etc? I was going to replace the cap and rotor etc with parts from Pep boys are genuine really worth 4x the money?

Are there not easy CDI conversions for the Rover V8?

I don't know the exact reason why they are different but I've been told to go with genuine parts especially a genuine rotor. The aftermarket ones apparently are not of the same quality and can lead to starting problems and stumbling rpms. I figured might as well keep it genuine for piece of mind.
