Need help with replacing spark plugs ASAP!

Hey guys just needed someone to change my spark plugs for me. I just moved to the east coast from Cali and I have ZERO tools. I also do not want to buy any at the moment. I already have all 6 spark plugs. The car is an 09 335i. I called some shops in Jersey and their prices are a bit ridiculous for something that only takes about 30-45 mins to do on this car. If anyone can help me, please call/text me at 661-310-5804. And of course I'm not expecting anyone to this for free, I'll pay you for it. I'm located in Hoboken, NJ so I'm willing to meet anyone within a reasonable distance from me. Thanks guys!

-Niko

Any chance you could help me out too? I really want to do this before the whether gets bad and I'm generally a DIY person but I want someone with a little experience and some tools to help out.

I have a friend/mechanic who will do it on the side for $75.
He's located near Clifton/Passaic border.
If anyone is interested PM me I'll give you his info.

He can also do any other maintenance service at a much cheaper labor price then dealerships and most garages.

I just did my plugs thru them a week ago. Best deal hands down, i would also ask about the vanos cleaning too since you are right there anyways. Just order your own plugs and bring them with you.
