what kind of spark plugs should i use in 325i??

What year is the car?

Bosch...great plugs for your money! And stay away from +2's and +4's.

Example:

1995 325i 2.5L M50 - PN# F7LDCR
1990 325i 2.5L M20 - PN# W8LCR

Well here is what I used to find the plug numbers if you want to try the other plugs offered from Bosch!

Alot of people have complained how crappy the car runs and the cost. If I were you I would do a search on bimmerforums.com and see if you can dig up some info there too.

NGK or Bosch coppers. Fancy smancy other sh*t just too $$ for nothing IMO. Your not tracking it or winning races are you?

Champion Coppers (the stock ones; same as listed in bentley and haynes manuals). I've tried em all, and even with my blower setup, the cheapest plugs work the best!

dealers use ngk, I used champions and it lasted me 2 month, and it cracked. I switched to dealers and never looked back

your bmw engine is tuned from the factory to utilize the oem plugs. changing plugs will not improve performance, and can even reduce performance.

NGK all the way! Trust me...I had +2, +4 and champions. Nothing beats the NGK.

i would recommend going to the dealership and buying the plugs from them... thats what i did, i spent a bit more, but my car feels great, oem for my car actually is ngk 4 prong, but it looks different then the ones in canadian tire of the same code... anyway, go oem, youl feel better...
