BMW recommends NGK's if not buying their own "NGK-rebranded" plugs. I've ALWAYS only used NGK's on my BMW's and I haven't ever had any complaints. I feel a difference in smoothness immediately.

Whether it was because of you following torque specs second time around, or using the NGK's, glad you got it figured out.
Agreed, alot of people think bosch is oem but really ngk are lol.

I really dont think so, The idle was so rough I turned it off right away cause I thought something would break. And its sure not me lol...Hell I even went out and bought torque wrench just to make sure it was all by the book.
