e46 coilpacks/plugs?

I have over 240000km on my 99 e46. I have been losing power and I now have an error code for cylinder two misfire. I will replace the coil pack and I am debating between spark plugs. Does anyone have a preference? I was planning on using NGK iridium

The originals lasted over 240k, why switch?
