    Can anyone recommend a good brand for 2000 BMW M5 E39 - Spark Plugs. I think that stock were made by BOSCH, but I found that DENSO, NGK as well as other companies. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Boris

    From what I have read BMW has authorized both the Bosch FGR7DQP and the NGK BKR6EQUP for the E39 S62 engine. I put a set of the NGKs on my E39 540i (M62) and I am happy with them.

    E39 spark plugs

    Here's probably a silly question, but I'll throw it out there anyway.

    I've been told by the dealership for years that spark plugs are now magic and last, seemingly forever. In my youth I changed plugs more often then I needed (probably). At what intervals should the plugs be realistically changed in an M62 ?
    It's a street driver, some in-town and some highway (and the occasional trip to the hill country for some minor steam release). Not really much in the way of severe driving.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the update John.

    That's when they were changed. I just didn't know if anyone had experiences that might indicate change sooner than 60k.

    Appreciated
