Iridium plugs last longer and are less likely to foul, more likely to provide a good, hot spark under difficult conditions. Platinum is OK, and less expensive, but not as good in the mentioned regards as iridium. Standard plugs cost less but aren't as reliable and wear out faster.

Be sure to use a resistor type plug (marked CR.....) in order to reduce the possibility of RF interference with the ignition.
