My car current mileage around 95k KM, i think it's about time to change the spark plug.
My Mazda 2 was bought in 2010.
As per the owner manual says it should be ZJ46-18-110 or ZJY6-18-110

Does anyone know what is the cost to buy from Bermaz ?
And what is the alternative spark plug that I could try ? My friend recommend PULSTAR but I don't know what is the suitable product code.
What about DENSO ?
I think it should be iridium plug

Thanks all !

what is the price for DENSO and NGK ? and what is the price if buy from Bermaz ? Bermaz also supplying DENSO ?
If not servicing any more in SC, can get from spare part shop. Not sure of the price now, I tried them a few years back and those days around RM160 for set of 4 for Denso.
Check with spare part shop for the prices...:driver:

more often that not, SC would price their items more expensive than spare-parts shops would.

most cases yes, but personal experience with Bermaz that some parts are sold cheaper when buying from Bermaz.
I tried the Mazda M-V ATF, outside spare part shop selling Mercon-V that is slightly different.
Mazda M-V from Bermaz is RM105 but Mercon-V is RM180, both price inclusive of GST.

I tried to google the plug code but i get all different answer... I think maybe because Mazda 2 has 2 version, without skyactiv and with skyactiv...

Yup, is Iridium plugs, if not cannot last 95k km loh.....

Can use NGK IFR5E13

Denso look here: MAZDA Vehicle spark plug parts coding and Denso Spark Plug Replacement table(2)
Weird, why another site saying IFR5E-11 ?

NGK, Denso, Bosch are ok. What is important is to use the correct spark plug gap. Check the workshop/maintenance manual of your car.

what about the mileage ? the spare part shop says Denso SK16PR-E13 no longer available in the market so he suggested me to go for platinum

what is the diff between platinum and iridium ? original Mazda ZJ46-18-110 is iridium or platinum ?

What about NGK? They don't have either?
Iridium and Platinum are the material difference. Iridium is harder so supposedly longer change interval. There is another call Iridium tough.
Only difference I know is Denso Iridium got smaller tip of 0.4mm whereas the rest are 0.6mm. Better or not? not sure.

I asked many spare part shops but none of them could provide appropriate spark plug

I think I should go back service centre and pay for the original parts...
