I've been driving my automatic 328i and have lately noticed a decline in the shifting. I'm talking about the car shifting at much higher rpm's then it should be ... i know i have to replace my sparkplugs, but could sparkplugs really be the problem? also, should i just go with standard oem sparkplugs?

i just posted something similar, my buddy's car wont shift untill he gets to about 3,000 or a little bit over, and that's when he's goin easy on the pedal. but when he really presses it, it will go up 6,000 and it wont even be going fast. i think it could be the throttle cable. BTW, it's also a 318i auto.
lol... sorry i didn't mention this eariler but the car doesn't belong to me, it belongs to my friends. but he doesn't know crap about cars. i dont know when the last time he did anything it it was. but there is no preformance mods whatsoever it's all stock.
