Wrong Spark Plug

Hi

I checked my spark plugs over the weekend and I'm not to sure if there the correct plugs, can anyone confirm for me if I have the correct ones please.

I have at the moment : NGK: ILZKBR7B8DG, but the info on this forum is saying I should have NGK: ILZKBR7A-8G, which plug is correct?

The owners manual will tell you what plugs to use.

Ok I managed to do some more research, and according to NGK website ILZKBR7B8DG is the correct plug for a 2008 R56 JCW mini and not ILZKBR7A-8G, the forum info looks to be wrong.
