Did you get your new plugs at the BMW dealer? I know there are some cheapo Bosch "platinums" you can get at the local Auto Mart that look the the BMW ones, but are much less expensive and will cause drivability issues. They will work fine in your Kia, but not in your BMW. I believe the "made for BMW" Bosch/NGKs have more platinum in them and are a much better plug. The econo-platinums are like 5 bucks each and the BMW versions are like 20 bucks a plug. As long as you get the correct plug (from the dealer) the Bosch and the NGK are interchangeable.
