I just bought a used '14 435i x-drive, and it's great, with the exception of some undetermined misfire mishap (originally just showing on 5) that I am now trying to problem solve... spark plugs replaced- now all cylinders are misfiring ~_~

I will he double checking the gap on all the new plugs by monday, once the new coil packs arrive-(so I have those on standby). I find it weird I would get a whole set of bad plugs, or ones that are way off in gap. I am seeing it should be a gap to .03 inches for a stock 435i?

If youíve worked on electrics before you will know stranger things can happen.

Are the definitely the correct plugs?

I believe 30-32 thou is correct but Iíve never owned an N55.

Good luck!

They are most certainly correct. They are the Bosch double Platium ones- they looked like the ones I took out minus the BMW logo.

Iím on day four (4) with my f36 and Iíll be honest I was looking at other f30ís to replace my totaled 320 and never considered a f36 but I saw one at my local Carmax and fell in love. Iím still learning about the car but the sports package helps keep the car planted and itís nicely equipped with options that further enhance the overall driving experience. The frameless doors really stand out IMHO.
