In my opinion, the NGK are better. Bosch is not what it once was IMHO.

I originally had Bosch when I first bought my BMW and switched over to NGK platinums (I believe). Ever since the car has been running smoother and more consistently, and honestly I wouldn't go back. Overall just feels like a much better, higher quality product.

Nobody can tell a difference. BMW used both as OE. I'll also use NGK if I can find them, but don't really care if I use Bosch.
