which spark plugs?

Tyres, exhausts, suspension, strut braces, air filters, brake pads/rotors and anything else for 'dawn raiders'.

which spark plugs?

Post by ALPHA 3.0i Z3 » Sat 12 Mar, 2016 08:20

Hi all looking to do a big service in coming weeks and was wondering what the bed plugs for the 3.0i Z3 are.
That is performance to price.
Any input will be gratefully accepted!!
Who says size doesn't matter? After a straight 6 3.0 litre....Its hard to go back .

I think the choice for your car will be either Bosch FGR 7DQP+ or NGK BKR 6EQUP. Both are current-day, “high performance” BMW OE plugs depending on where in the World you live. Both are platinum, four electrode plugs. You will find that people tend to have their own preference – in the UK the NGK ones are popular. Personally, in my 1.9, I prefer the Bosch and I noticed a slight performance improvement when fitting.

Iridium plugs are a lot more expensive and are designed more for a longer service interval. The max is supposed to be 90k miles. Platinum 60K and the old copper ones 30k. Would I leave any plugs in my car for 90k or even 60k – definitely not.
