Hi ya

Cert wise you will need to speak to bmw they will need to verify the car and then they might be able to help you.

Plug wise If you have the jcw kit fitted you will need NGK BKR7EQUP
But you can use NGK iridium BKR7EIX

Best place I have found

Sparkplugs UK NGK Champion Denso Sparkplug, Glowplug and Lambda Sensors

Hi ya

When you change them give it 150-200 miles then check torque them then same again after the next 150-200 mile. They have a habit of loosing torque and coming out.
If you do this you should not have any trouble in the future.
