That is what I thought, but everything I read says 16 valves. That is going to different sites, but perhaps they are all quoting the same erroneous source. I can find nothing definitive from Honda themselves, and the Haynes manual doesn't say. I am not taking the head off to have a look!  ;D

Found this from a different source:

Honda L12A-series
Engine type: spark-ignition 4-stroke
Fuel type: petrol (gasoline)
Fuel system: indirect injection
Charge system: naturally aspirated
Valves per cylinder: 2
Additional features:
PGM-FI; SOHC; i-DSi; 2 spark plugs per cylinder

Emission control: 3-way catalyst, Lambda-Sensor
Emission standard: Euro 3

Cylinders alignment: Line 4
Displacement: 1244 cm3 / 75.8 cui
Bore: 73 mm / 2.87 in
Stroke: 74.3 mm / 2.93 in
Compression ratio: 10.8 : 1
Horsepower net: 57 kW / 78 PS / 76 hp (ECE)/ 5700

It would appear than every other source I have found harks back to Wikipedia, and as usual their data is wrong.

Yep, you sure do have 8 plugs - plenty of info on this forum about changing plugs, especially the rear ones which are a bit trickier than the front ones. Use the search function and 'rear plugs' or spark plug or similar.
Some people will only consider you an expert if they agree with your point of view or advice,  when you give them advice they don't like they consider you an idiot

When you say 2008 are you referring to a GD (Mk 1) or a GE (Mk 2)? This part of the VIN number will tell you: JHMGD57106S******
Rear plugs on the Mk 1 are easy enough to do. The Mk 2 is a different kettle of fish, I believe.

According to the VIN check it's a GE but did see in the handbook it had 8 plugs and coil packs, lordy!
Have to say the handbook is great for showing how to go about things. Very helpful.

In 2008 it could be i-DSi (GD) or i-VTEC (GE) - the GE was on sale in late 2008 (58 plate).

Has it got i-DSI or i-VTEC on the plastic engine cover ? (the first thing you see on top of engine when you open the bonnet).  i-VTEC only has 4 plugs, on the rear of engine, bit of a PITA to get to but this forum has plenty of info on getting to them.

I believe they continued to use the i-DSi (8 plug) engine in the Jazz Hybrid after 2008,  but pretty sure they did not make a 1.2 Hybrid.

There is useful youtube guide in thread link below to removing the bits to get to the plugs on i-VTEC (only 4 plugs, but fitted at the rear of engine).
