Has anyone tried getting the "dusting" out after you remove the spark plug? You can kind of see some debris in this pic:

Use some compressed air and/or some Brake Kleen(and don't forget those safety glasses!).

Car now runs like a champ with no misfires under load.

Anyone have a recommendation for a really good torque wrench for this?

Snap-On makes some really nice ones. Mac Tools or Matco or Hazet, Geodore, also make nice stuff.

Just make sure the wrench you are using has a middle range of what you are trying to torque down. In other words... if your tightening something to 21Nm use a wrench that 21Nm is in its middle tq range. Say a wrench that has a range of 5Nm to 40Nm. Not a wrench that can torque up to 250Nm!!


Also don't forget when storing your tq wrench never have it preset to the tq setting. This compresses the internal spring and over time will throw off your tq wrench's accuracy. Always have it set to ZERO ft/lbs or Nm - when not being used.

I can not see the OP's @e.n335 pictures either.

It looks like @e.n335 uploaded his pics to a third party site and the account has expired. This is why its always a good idea to upload your photos to the forum directly. Just click ADVANCE MODE, then use the paper clip icon to upload pics directly to our site. This way they will always be there for future members.

Btw... my photos are still here... on page three of THIS thread.

Or here at this link...

I was going to say he's one of the mods still, so just contact him to fix the links. He has the pics still hopefully.

But now I see he's not been on the forums for over 2 years, so am wondering why he's still a mod even?

I had mine done by one of my friends who is a mechanic, im not sure if he torqued them or not. the car runs fine and i haven't had any problems. I was just wondering if there are any negatives of not torquing them to spec?

You are over due for new plugs! For all x35 engines the spark plugs should be changed every 45K miles. IF you are running a tune... every ~20K is the norm.

When you get a PPK tune from BMW this is what they say...
