Basically I don't want to go to the dealership and pay like $12 each spark plug. Canadian Tire doesn't seem to have them, at least not the ones I've been to...

I called the dealer and they wanted $6.44 ea. not sure if that was my cost or not, but it still wont work out to $12 ea.

I called a few other parts places, they all had bosch platinums and ngks. One place that did have em, wanted $8, i was like wtf the dealer is cheaper.

BMA has em for like $2, too bad we're not in the U.S

Weird, last time I went there to get them for the 525i, it was like $80 taxes in for a set of 6. I'll call there tomorrow again, hopefully you're right. I basically want to fix a rough cruising situation, and the ignition coils seem find, and by the way it feels it's not a fuel issue....

I bought a set of wires for my 318Is for $145 and change. The dealer wanted $650. Form what I understand Bosch makes the wires for BMW.

Luckily my 328 doesn't have plug wires, although I'll keep this in mind when I comes time to change the ones on my 528, thanks.

Hmm I called a few places a few weeks ago, and thats the price autohaus gave me, havne't picked up a set yet, but i will soon. I think our discount is only like 20%.

Well, I was just looking up a bunch of information, I'm going for NGK's instead.

Got mine at Eurotech. I had issues with the NGK's due to a product change and a VIN split. Talk to Jamie, 416-255-3376. I think he's planning to be at the track this weekend, so maybe he can bring them along. I'll be there from Thursday nite to Sunday.

Hmmm, that's not what I want to hear.....

I bought the 2 prong ones, but I've checked a few other boards and it seems that 4 prong seems to be the concensous.

I think you made the right choice with the NGK's. I went from NGK's with 55k to Bosch and got a bump, bump smooth bump, bump at idle. This year I went back to NGK's and she's smooth again. I bought the 2 prong ones aswell.

Are these plugs for what car? If they are for your 328.... the part number you want is BKR6Equp... from NGK 4 prong. I just switched them on my M3 and idle is smoother as I just took out bosch platinums. I got them from the dealer though but I got my cost. Each plug is 19$ at the dealers and my cost was like 11$

If you want, give me a part number and Ill get you my cost if you want.
Later

Yep, the BKR6EQUP plugs are the exact plugs I'm looking at, those or the Iridiums. I've heard nothing but good things from either plug.
