DIY: Spark Plug Change N55 (2011 335i Sedan) Video

Feedback appreciated. Some advice before you start:

1.) PLEASE USE METRIC TOOLS! This is a European car and guess what measuring system their engineers use? I see other DIY's saying to use SAE or English size sockets and such... It MIGHT work, but you run a big risk of rounding off the nuts/bolts! If you do that, you will need special tools to extract.

2.) Be patient and take your time (2-3 hours). Its tempting to do things right before a run or such, but trying to do a repair under time pressure is not ideal. You run a big risk of doing something wrong and then having to redo it.

3.) Try to do this on a level surface as you are removing a strut brace. And for your own safety should parking brake fail, etc...

Here's Part 1 of the video. Takes you all the way through removing the first spark plug.

And here is Part 2. Takes you all the way through starting the engine back up!

Excellent video!
I want to add that I always cover the pipe going down to the turbo after you removed the air intake at 3:10. If anything falls down there you are screwed. I use a plastic bag and a tie wrap.
