    2002 Audi A4 1.8T B6 Spark plugs UGLY!

    Any Audi braniacs here?
    What would cause this? I bought the car earlier this year from the OG owner and it was well maintained, Errr, so I thought it was. I was replacing the POS PCV hoses and replacing the Valve cover gasket and thought I'd check the plugs..

    The car is sluggish out of the hole and since it's a CVT I was worried maybe the trans was slipping or the turbo was going but then I noticed the Breather hose was broke to shit along with most of the other hoses on the PCV system and decided to get dirty.

    Looks like detonation, the PO was probably using 87 octane, the 1.8T calls for 91 octane

    Those plugs look like they have deposits from poor fuel Quality or its burning some oil seepage
