NGK makes a plug LKR8AP, around $12 each on the internet. I believe this is the OEM plug for the M5 (press release here: NGK: NEW NGK SPARK PLUGS FOR THE BMW M5 WILL ALSO ACT AS SENSORS )

NGK also makes a racing plug that will fit, R2556B- in heat ranges of 8,9,or 10 for close to $100 each.

In fact I don't think anyone other than NGK makes a plug that fits the M5.

1989 Isuzu Impulse 2.6L turbo-397hp/414tq at the wheels
1984 1-ton van
1989 Toyota PU 3RZ swap-on hold, stock 22RE in the meantime

I have read a few posts referring to miles left to change spark plugs. I can't find anything in the iDrive settings. Where can I look to see how much life my spark plugs have left? I'm just over 35k miles but I don t know if the plugs have ever been changed, I just bought the car about a month ago. I plan on taking it to the dealer next week to address a couple warrantee items but I would like to make sure that all services are performed while there. TIA...
