Don't use Bosch plugs in the S54. You will only have problems.

Anyone use a special socket for this job? I know for my other BMW models I purchased a special socket for the job. Particularly one with a magnetic at the end, but also one with thin side walls. Let me knows. thanks

Comprehensive DIY for ignition coils and plugs. Should do both at the same time IMHO

While that DIY is done well, it has one slight error. The torque value for the spark plugs is 17 ft-lbs 2 for the S54 according to the TIS.
