    I have a cupra 290 mk3 I'm running stage 1 with a few other mods like R600 intake and forge coolant hose kit and so on but I would like to know the best spark plugs I could use?

    I've opted for the RS7 spark plugs with the RS3 coilpacks

    I think the RS7 ones or the NGK R7438-9 racing plugs are what people usually opt for.

    Are the RS7 spark plugs Audi spark plugs?

    No, they're NGK too, just slightly different. Similar prices for a set of either.
