1998 740il plugs

I just bought a 1998 BMW 740il with 128,000 miles. I am going to do a oil and filter change
Monday but would like to do the spark plugs to. What kind of spark plugs does it take.

Should be in this chart from the E39 bestlinks ... (which should cover all models, including the E38):
- BMW spark plug application charts (1) (2) & the best plug to use (1) (2) & a deciphering key (1) & keys to reading plugs (1) & the truth about torque & anti-seize (1) & the truth about gap (1) (2) & DIYs for replacing spark plugs (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6)
Please read the suggested threads and add value, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person stands on your shoulders.
