Goran, here in the states the EVX (platinum) are discontinued. The replacement is EIX (iridium)for the suffix. I know there is still stock of the platinums scattered, I too used them but in the heat range of 9. The Platinums were also cheaper than the iridiums. If you can still get them they are great plugs. I run BKR9EIX, what I like about this plug, is that it has a 5/8 hex instead of 13/16. This makes it easier to get the socket in the tight confines of the 911. specially if you are running twin plug. Word to the wise you must NOT use those generic sparkplug gap tools on iridium plugs. The ground strap must be bent by itself and not using the electrode as a fulcrum. Rule of thumb is for every 100HP over stock, you run "1" heat range colder.
