When I changed the original NGK spark plugs in my 2001 Z3 3.0 a few months ago at about 75,000 miles, I went with the $20 spark plugs from the dealer (which were Bosch)
I read the post and I guess I'm wrong. From whats written it looks like the BMW and Pep Boys plugs are the same. Just curious, armed with that knowledge, why did you go for the dealer part at the heightened cost?
