Anti-Seize Compound on new Spark Plugs?

Changing spark plugs next week and I was wondering if I should add an anti-seize compound on the spark plugs when I change them?

From what I read this is the one I want:

BMW does not reccomend any anti seize on the plugs during install. But if you absolutely must, use a conductive anti-seize from parts source (like $1 out of the little packs). I know Audi advises to use conductive paste on the plugs and on the coil-plug connection too.

Ya I heard BMW does not recommend it. I was wondering if anyone uses it or I should just go without it.

If you end up using it, check torque specs for spark plugs with anti-seize, so you don't over-torque it.

P.S. I didn't use it.
