Had a slight stumble at idle almost like a misfire. I pulled my plugs and found the following after 2k miles.Bought a new pair of NGK Iridium's and problem solved

Hadn't heard of E3 plugs. Looking at the design it's really not so clear to me what the advantage is. If anything that massive strap electrode is just blocking the flame front.

Um...is that plug you're holding missing the center electrode, or is that just the angle?

Yeah...thaaaat's not good.

Hopefully it made it out of the chamber without doing any damage. If it did do damage I'd be contacting the manufacturer for compensation...that's completely unacceptable.

Fancy configured spark plugs are another form of snake oil.

And I agree with Gubi, that plug appears to block the flame front.

I thought E3's were just for lawn mower engines. They may not even be good for that.
