Gavin, I can think of a couple of possibilities here: 1: A lot of *really* short trips - like starting the car and running it for 2 minutes to rearrange cars in the drive, etc. 2: Have you been naughty and not changed your oil? If so, it's possible that deposits have built-up that are causing the piston rings to stick. 3: Wrong spark plugs? Might want to check and make sure the correct ones are fitted.
