Advantage of OE development

Ignition systems from Bosch

Published:  02 March, 2017

Bosch works closely with OEMs in the development of their ignition systems providing, them with efficient, quality systems. It also supplies the aftermarket sector with the same quality, OE recommended ignition products, including ignition leads, ignition coils, glow plugs and spark plugs.

The latest developments see the use of precious metal alloy electrodes such as platinum and iridium as well as the use of nickel-chrome and Nickel-Yttrium. Even with the growing popularity of hybrid and electric powertrains, traditionally fuelled vehicles make up the majority of the UK car parc and will remain a big part of the UK aftermarket for a number of years to come.

For parts distributors and workshops looking for a clear solution for each vehicle, Bosch has launched a streamlined spark plug catalogue. User friendly and easier to navigate, the catalogue provides clear a OE recommendation for those looking for the perfect replacement.
