Engine bogging fixed

So today I decided to look at what was the reason my engine was bogging down and sounded like only 5 of the 6 pistons were working. I've ran into these issues in the past but both have been 2 different scenarios. One time it was a fuel injector that had failed. The other time I swapped the spark plugs and that did the trick. Today, a spark plug was broken, the top of the plug came out with the plug boot!

They had about 7k on them. They were Bosch, so I picked up some NGK plugs installed them and problem solved. Now time to wash the bimmer
