Life Span of Spark Plugs

What's the life span of a standard Volvo spark plugs ?

the turbo engines are recommended by volvo to change every 20K but being
malaysian 40K also no problem.
BTW turbo plugs go for RM120++ per set for the 850T5, now you can see the
reason for 40K "extended" mileage....and the plugs are not even platinum
tipped, just plain old copper.

accelaration. I think it can last more than 20K..formally I use only
standard Bosch copper core. Hv you intend to do any upgrading to your
740 ?? it worth the effort. I just did top overhaul, port and polish, add
in sport muffler, direct flow filter...wah much much fun to drive and yet
not heavy on fuel..interested ???

satisfy with my NA 740GLE..the top speed is about 160km/hr only !!!! I
remembered another Volvo kaki told me that his NA 940GL also tops at
160km/hr...could be this is the top they could go...what about yours....

I know the N/A 850 can use a variety of standard plugs eg copper to
irridiums but i have heard that the T5s have lots of problems with anything
else other than copper.
