Hey Guys,

So when i bought my car about a year ago i changed the spark-plugs. Today i was just pulling one out to look at it and noticed wet oil on one. Any details would be helpful with an explanation.

Here are the pictures of them, 1.5 years old with about 11,000 miles on them. I should point out that they seemed loose when i unscrewed them. Seems i need a proper torque wrench.

they are totally fine, you're probably getting oil through your valve cover gasket, and not that much anyway.
on the other subject though those don't look like the proper spark plugs.
what did you use? recommended is either NGK or Denso.

Agreed: Plugs look fine.

Those are some gimmicky ones if I am not mistaken. Probably more $$$ and no more performance. I would just used Denso or NGK.

Also, make sure to use some anti-seize paste on the threads for re-install and torque to 16lb/ft.

Good luck.
