Changing spark plugs on F01/F02

Has anyone done the spark plugs on your own 7, I'm far from a novice when it comes to doing my own work but tearing into anything on this car makes me nervous, just looking for some insight any help is appreciated

Most of these cars are probably within their warranty (with maintenance included) or just out of it. I figure most of the work is being done by the dealers since it's included. I'm not sure of the recommended interval for spark plugs but I wouldn't be surprised if it was 100K miles. So if it is 100K, most of our cars haven't reached that mileage yet.

Just a guess as to why you have no substantive responses.

You may want to try posting in the F01/F02 forum as well.

When it comes to maintenance BMWs are not much different than any other car. You should be able to do this without a problem on your F02. Post pics if you do!

Job requires a special BMW spark plug socket to do. Be careful not to break the crank case hoses under the micro-filter boxes
