NGK winners celebrate Mega points haul

Ten lucky UK garages have been celebrating after winning a fantastic NGK BoxClever promotion.

Members of NGK’s BoxClever independent garage loyalty scheme are encouraged to collect and return NGK single boxes in exchange for points which they can then redeem to select prizes of their choice.

In the promotion, they were given double points to fit the company’s NTK Lambda, camshaft & crankshaft and MAF and MAP sensors, earning 300 points for every Lambda sensor purchased and 200 points for every camshaft & crankshaft or MAF and MAP sensor fitted.

Each time they purchased one of the products they were entered into a free prize draw where the ten lucky winners each received 50,000 points!

Mark Hallam, Marketing Manager, NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd, said: “The promotion was a great success with more than half-a-million points given away with the ten lucky winners from all over the UK each receiving  50,000 points to exchange for some fantastic prizes.”

The lucky winners were: Fast Fit Tyre, Harlow; 4 Smart, Cheltenham; W F C Service Centre Ltd, Norwich; K N Motor Repairs, Macclesfield; Geens Garage, South Molton; Eric W Parker & Co, Northampton; R N M Autos, South Shields; Mike & Warren Burgess, Andover; Lethen Motors Ltd, Aberdeen; and Little Eaton Garage Ltd, Little Eaton.

Meanwhile, the ignition and sensor specialist is currently giving BoxClever members an even bigger incentive to fit its Iridium and Platinum ‘precious metal’ spark plugs in its latest promotion.

It is offering BoxClever members extra points when they purchase the spark plugs until December 31, 2022.

They will receive thirty points each time they collect and return the NGK single boxes the spark plugs come in – three times more than normal during the not-to-be-missed promotion.

Precious metal spark plugs may be more expensive, but when specified by vehicle manufacturers (VMs) and used during service and repair they will prevent possible problems due to:

  • poor ignition performances
  • poor tolerance to fouling
  • higher ignition coil loads
  • and increasing unwanted emissions.


NGK has been developing spark plug technology since the 1930s and manufactures plugs for every type of automotive engine.


This is why the NGK product range has the right product for nearly every engine and every demand.

  • unique design to guarantee the best possible performance
  • wide range of different heat ratings for high thermal endurance
  • high-performance spark plugs for the newest engine technologies
