Subject: <E36> Let's replace the spark plugs in my '97 318ti
This is the first time I've replaced the spark plugs on an E36. I
performed this procedure on my '97 318tis, build date 4/97. My car had the
NGK plugs. I replaced them with the Bosch plugs. If your car is different,
modify the following accordingly. As always, feel free to do it your way.
Here we go:
Typically the margin on most BMW parts is 40%. On the following two
maintenance items the margin is 50%. It is also 50% on the fuel filter. I
didn't know that.
4 each Bosch F7LDCR 12 1 9 063 428 $5.51 retail each
4 each NGK BKR6EK 12 12 9 064 619 $6.30 retail each
1 each 5/8 spark plug removal socket, Sears 43324 $3.99
retail or equivalent
Replace the cable channel cover. Make a note of changing the plugs in
your service book.
