The trick to saving some money with the plugs and coils is to buy your parts from partsgeek.com or rockauto.com. I don't work for either one of these places, but I've had good success with partsgeek.com. All of the parts I ordered from them like thermostat, water pump, coils, plugs, etc. were all OEM parts that were not stamped with the BMW logo.

Generally speaking, the plugs will be anywhere from $9-11. and the coils will be around $30. If you compare that price to ECS or Tischer BMW, their plugs will be $18 and the coils about $48.
Great bro! Thanks for the tip. I will check them out. I have not changed my plugs or coils yet. I was planning to change the plugs which I found them for about $10.00 a piece. (NGK 1208) to be exact. I was not planning to change the coils since I have not had any issues. but now that you are mentioning it, i will. I mean it makes sense since I will be working on the plugs.

Thanks again!.
