Yeah I'm thinking I need new spark plugs. It's an '08 535i and it runs like a dream but I did not get any info from the previous owner stating he changed the spark plugs. You think I'm better off ordering the parts from Bosch or BMW. I can get any part from them wholesale because I work at a dealership and we have plenty of Bimmers on our lot.
No need to buy BMW spark-plugs, just use BOSCH ZGR6STE2 (the exact same one as BMW 12 12 0 037 244).

BMW genuine spark-plugs at dealer is like $35-$40 each, the BOSCH is like $11-$12 each online

I am replacing mine this weekend since I need to bleed my brake anyway, got the parts and thin-wall spark-plug sockets from BurgerTuning already.
the turbo engine needs spark-plugs every 45-kmiles, more often if tuned
