First Spark Plug Replacement

Took advantage of some decent weather and did my first spark plug replacement on my 2008 Honda Civic EX-L. I used IZFR6K-11S Stock No. 5266 I found on Amazon, alot of the places I found were selling them for $20 or higher per plug so I feel like I got a good deal on them from Amazon for a set of 4 for about $37. I found the vehicle had some Bosch Platinum +2 spark plugs. My next project is going to be changing the transmission fluid. I ordered 4qts and it should be here the start of next week Monday or Tuesday, hopefully the weather holds out.

Did you add anti-sieze on the threads?

No, I read that putting anti-sieze on NGK was not recommended

Yes it is not needed as NGK has a type of coating on it. I think itís noted on their website.
