one, was there antiseize on the plugs you pulled out from the factory ? yes or no ?
two, Porsche recently issued a service bulletin advising not to use anti sieze compound anymore because of its non-conducive properties, they have found it can interfere with getting a proper ground on the electrode,
Would anyone care to shed any light on this ?
Any1 here who is BMW tech have any info on this. I am curious. There are lots of photos on old plugs in this thread but how can you tell if it has anti seize from factory? Look @ post #5 and 53 for photos of old plugs.
