glow plugs for M47N2

I have dead 2 glow plugs on 320d 2005. This is engine M47N2 and I am not sure where in US to buy correct ones. Friend is traveling to NY next week and would like to buy but I am not sure which one to buy and where.

Of course, I can go to BMW dealer, but this will be bosh in BMW package, so, anyone know which bosh part number is matching for my engine or anyone have to recommend something better ?

BTW. I am living in the city where in winter low temperature is like 0 C, not less, as glow plug replacement can be problem, should I replace this or just let it as is ?

Thank you in advance,
Dejan

Give your friend the Vehicle ID number (VIN) and he can probably get them from a dealer. Or you could order them online from a dealer in the US that is near where your friend is traveling and he can pick them up. The 320d isn't sold in the US but they use the same glow plugs as in the 335d if the production date is from 9/2007 according to the Bosch aftermarket catalog.

Here (in Chile) BMW dealer selling all AT LEAST twice expensive than regular price, and often some things don't have, then starting with fun story, they need to diagnose, to check to blah blah blah, lies and damned lies. We are talking about 1000 US$ for that, they didn't wanted to tell me price.

I've bough 4x bosh duraterm on ebay, with shipping included like 80 US$, after 1 month got it and installed it for little more than 3 hours with couple short cigarette, beer, coffee breaks.

My engine is M47N2, that for took 3 hr, has to remove intake manifold, some other are a bit faster.
