Cool Spark plugs

I am gathering parts for 24K service. I called my son for plugs, gave him the number and he cant seem to find anything on the oem plug.
Mike (my son) works at auto zone. is there a cross ref # for the plugs are is it only a dealer item?

The Bosch number is not available from any automotive parts dealer I could find, only from BMW motorcycle dealers.

I used the Splitfire TP416D plugs, really liked them, and they will last a LONG time, having three platinum electrode tips.

There is also NGK Iridium available, DCPR7EIX, or their standard DCPR7E.

Champion has RA8HC standard, or 8812 "Super Class", but I would not put Champion in my lawn mower. The only brand of plugs I have had problems with in cars is Champion.

If you really want to stay with OEM plugs, give these guys a try.

Also I don't think I would be too afraid of the filters either.

One of many threads on plugs:

http://www.bmwlt.net/ubbthreads/show...&Number=269601

That one has some 'cross referenced' numbers and several real world comments.
