Bosch ZGR6STE2 Question

I have a 2007 BMW 335i sedan and i am going to change the spark plugs and i have searched and can not find the answer to my question.
So my question is do i need to "gap" the spark plugs or are they "pre gapped?"
Thanks!

It doesn't really matter, you should always check the gap of each plug prior to installing it. A spark plag gap tool is a few dollars at any parts store.

You cannot accurately gap these; they have multiple side electrodes. Unless you drop or bang them, they arrive properly gapped from the factory.

Just wanted to say thanks for the answer. 3 years later, and your answer is still helpful to a BMW owner.
