Denso Iridium or NGK laser iridium

I am having a problem picking which plugs to use. My car is a 2006 325i.
I've seen that bmw's stock plugs are ngk iridium but are they laser? would it make a difference if i drop the denso iridium IKH20 since it is suppose to be direct replacement

In have used both the bosch and the NGK, back to back on a dyno.

The NGK's ran better. I was getting a bit of ignition break up in mid range with the Bosch.

SO NGK all the way
