I just purchased my first BMW its a 2001 740il, What a machine. I have doing my own work on the American Cars for years and I got to the plugs but don't know how to unplug the coils to remove plugs. Though I'd ask before I screw something up.

Hi,
Very easy on these cars. Just remove the "BMW" logo covers. Then the coils remove using a 10MM socket. Remove the connector which just consist of unlatching the connector. Plugs are like all else. Very important though that you tighten the spark plugs to 30NM. Any more and you'll strip them.
