520i lux spark plugs

Recommended Posts

Hi, new to the forum.


I bought a 1987 520i lux last year and will be ready to carry out my fist service; After checking a webpage for the correct plugs I purchased some NGK BP5ES ones recently which have a 0.6mm gap. I'm sure when I looked in the Haynes manual it mentioned 0.7mm gap.


Will these BP5ES plugs be ok?

Yes the plugs and gap will be fine. You can always adjust it if need be. Make sure that they have screw on ends or are threaded. You dont want the screw on part, but the plug leads need the threaded end. 


Be very careful how you remove the leads. DONT pull on the lead, only on the cap.
