The best spark plugs ?

I am changing the cam cover gasket on my 328is this weekend. I thought, while I am in there I might as well change the spark plugs.

Is there a preferred plug to use?

NKG was OEM on most M52 motors. NKG Laser Platinum are the norm. I run single prong NKG's in mine because I find the four prong redundant. Single or dual prong is perfectly fine and cheaper.

I just did my spark plugs right before I bent a vavle. My plan was to purchase Bosch spark plugs but they did not have any in stock so I went with NGK's. I was told that ultimately you want Bosch and that NGK is an OEM replacement. For future knowledge, is this true?

I prefer NKG. They were OEM from the Dealership.
