Which ignition service kit should I use?

Looking to service my coils and plugs in the coming weeks, I did some research on which would be the better choice for coils and plugs: BMW OEM or Bosch.

Narrowed my choices down to this kit and this kit from ECS Tuning, but I'm still not sure on which would be the better choice.

Thoughts? Is there really much of a difference between the two performance-wise?

I think they are both overpriced and can be had for quite a bit less, the bmw one especially I could buy from my dealer for AT LEAST $100 less than they have it online for.

My Order

I have the Bosch on order from Bavarian Auto ~ both plugs and coils.
.
I have run both the BMW & Bosch plugs in the past and could not tell the difference. I am sure you can find a better price -- just paid 317.00 shipped.
.
Bavauto & ECS are both very reliable and excellent cust support.

Got the coils and plugs

Shipment of my Bosch Coils and plugs came in today. Installed plugs with a little copper anti-seize at 21nm. Coils were made 12-13-13 so they are pretty fresh. Car runs great -- I would recommend Bavauto however Eeuroparts sold the parts for 65 less.
