2.0/2.2 (twin electrode) ------------------------- 91132006------ £3.08 retail (£1.73 trade club)
2.5/3.0 to eng no 08018688 (twin electrode) ----- 90509739------ £3.37 retail (£2.30 trade club)
2.5/3.0 from eng no 080186889 (twin electrode) -- 91132006------ £3.08 retail (£1.73 trade club)
2.6/3.2 (twin electrode) ------------------------- 91132086------ £3.53 retail (£2.04 trade club)
In most places both the 2.5/3.0 91132006 and the 2.6/3.2 91132086 are referred to as 'twin electrode', but in others (including elsewhere cavweb!) the 2.6/3.2 91132086 are reffered to as 'quad electrode'. My 2.6 had the originals, but i would like to get the replacment fromn Vx before taking mine out - can anyone confirm either way...? Thanks.

See for example:

standard vx twin electrode (91132006) are as good as any. if you want a better spark you can use vx quad electrode part no. iirc 91132086 which are a direct replacement.

i have these in my calibra and a tech at work has them in his V6 vectra

They changed them on the 2.6 & 3.2 to extend the life - The 2 are 40k the 4 i'm sure are 100k plugs - what they don't say is they usually work loose before 40k so need to be torqued up here and there.

Are you serious??? I was just quoted by Vx 105 quid for changing the spark plugs on my 40k miles 2.6 2001 CDX, are you saying that I could just leave them in and drive another 60k without worries???

OK, so we have two views. One is to change them every 100k and the other every 10k. So now I know....

I am just used to 10k (or every year) changes on plugs. Just part of the maintenance schedule I like to follow. :)

I used to own Saabs, and the one thing you do not do is skip on the plug changes with them (kills the ignition pack).

But there are far wiser minds than mine on here, and if they say 100k, fair enough. :)

even the twins will easily go 50K without any attention.

OK, I just bought the original Vx quads P/N 91132086, and what's in the box is actually BOSCH FGR8KQE0 (you'l need a magnifying glass to spot it though...). So now we know what Vx actually using (well, to be truthful it has been mentioned before that they use Bosch). The Vx retail cost from main dealer was as Mark DTM said, amounting to £24 for 6 inc. VAT. And they are made in Germany, not Brazil as suggested elsewhere.
