Default NGK Platinum, Iridium, or V-Power??

I'm buying a new set of spark plugs and wires for my 98 Accord, but I'm not sure which one to get. I don't know which ones which, but I heard that the Platinum or Iridium, one of them is a cold spark, and one is a hot spark. I'm not sure what that means and I don't know what the V-Power brand is. The reason I mention the NGK V-Power one is because it's cheaper than the others for some reason.

Also, anyone know any reasonable prices for the set of 4 Platinum or Iridium spark plugs with wires set so I can make sure I'm not getting ripped off eBay? This is the first time I'm changing plugs on my car that's why (don't know why the previous owner (big bro) didn't do it before).

im not sure for the prices in your area but the are not cheap.... i would recommend the iriduim ones (cold)..... runs a better spark when hot!
and get msd cables...have the best current movement (read it in a mag!)

I can mix MSD wires with NGK plugs? Isn't it better just to stay consistent?

Hmm, can't seem to find the MSD spark plug wires for my car at all. Not even on msdignition.com. Wow.

Nology also makes a very good set of wires... MSD is good but so is Nology and if you want a high performance reputable and tested set of plug wires then either one of those sets would be about the best you're going to find....

okay... about the iridium sparks, the higher the id number, the colder.... which means they get rid of the engine heat better than the hot ones....
