    So i just bought a set of e3 spark plugs to replace in my bmw 325xi that has 115,000miles on it.
    I got through one spark plug and halfway through the second when rain started down pouring on me...just to go with the rest of my luck today :/
    I threw the coil back in the well (didn't even secure it) closed my hood, brought my cabin filter housing and ignition cover inside along with all my tools and proceeded to damn the weather.
    So anyways, now that i'm anxiously waiting to continue my little project, anyone know if i will really experience any performance gains? better gas mileage?
    OH
    and before i forget to ask, i have this black and white(silver) theme going on with my bmw and was trying to see if anyone would reccomend i flip the covers on the plastic covers that cover the top of the engine. (aka make the silver lines black and the rest of the cover silver)

    If the old ones were pretty dirty / burned then you may get a smoother running car once you have changed them up!

    Could be interesting and different to reverse the paint on the rocker covers. Personally id go with a bit of colour, I like red and black lines or red and silver lines. What size are your wheels?
