Plug Wires

Looking to replace the plug wires on my 92S, no mods

So price out some at the local parts store
Borg oem typoe with LT warranty-$50
Generic with 5yr warranty-$30
Accel-$60
Bosch-$46
Durlast-$35

With the exception of the Accels, these are all 7mm wires with no pretty colors-and everyone knows that red\blue\yellow wires makes your car preform better.

I notice on, say ebay for example, that one can get NGK or Vision Motorworks wires for less-including shipping.

These are oversized wires, 9-10mm

Seems like kinda of a no brainer to just order off-line.
The oversize is probably overkill on a stock engine and likely offers no benefits but at least I can get some go-fast colors

Only drawback I see is that oversized wires will no likely fit in any of the stock looms, so would have to do something about that.

Buy locally or go on-line????
