Where to buy spark plugs for 650i?

Hey guys, I'm going to take a shot at changing my spark plugs some time in the near future. RealOEM is showing me a Bosch spark plug with BMW part # 12122158252. I researched a little and found Bosch FR-7-KPP-332 is the matching Bosch part number? I couldn't find this spark plug anywhere except online... does anyone know if I can get this plug at Advance Auto Parts? (or a different plug that has the same specs?) Thanks in advance!

Nvm, purchased a set of these: http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/web...tion-_-General

NGK's website shows it as a compatible OEM replacement and I tend to be slightly more biased towards iridium plugs rather than platinum plugs. I'll follow up with a review after I change them out, though I'm not really expecting any difference from the OEM plugs.

Bavauto.com or oembimmerparts.com is where I usually shop for maintenance parts but take a look at site sponsor section too. No opinion on which plug to get.

Both Bosch and NGK's are stock at different times. Either will work fine. I did mine not long ago. Got them from bimmerzone.com because they are local to me and I can pick them up. It was around $10 a plug. Very happy with the results, you can search my past post to see pictures and impressions.

Hi,

Should I replace the coil packs too? I did that on my Audi, but it's an easy 4cyc. Not sure about our 6.

I didn't and I wouldn't unless one or more were damaged or not working properly. But you'd have known if they were bad, the car would have given you a misfire code.
