    Yes, I have the same car. You already have NGK's in your car, but upgrading
    to either the NGK Platinum or Iridium series will make a slight but
    noticeable difference.
    Most ppl also use Magnagore wires and MSD coils.

    Your local parts store will have the plugs, but you will have to shop around
    for the wires and coils as most performance parts for the SC2 ended in '99
    for some odd reason.
    But - many '99 parts can be used on a '02 SC2, the wires for instance.

    Happy motoring!

    wires. What are the advantages & diadvantages of this ugrade?

    I've been through a bunch of different wires and plugs (details on all of
    them are on my website). Despite what all the manufacturer claims say,
    there will be no gains from them on a naturally aspirated Saturn motor
    (stock, or with performance bolt-ons) unless your current ones aren't
    performing properly. So find some that make the engine compartment look
    nice at least.
