They work in all E36s, I'm pretty sure of that. An engine is an engine, a spark plug is a spark plug.

Careful with that one mate!!

The difference with spark plugs is the electrode gap. If this is too big or too small, the spark will happen at the wrong time and you will lose efficiency.

In this case though, the plug will work fine in your car and most other E36's

Yep, on these NGKs the gap is preset for most E36s as far as I'm aware.

Too true! You will not be disappointed with the Iridiums, It was a surprise how much of a difference they actually make!
