I'd take them to autozone and see if you can't exchange them for some ngk or bosch plugs. I know you don't have a receipt, but it's worth a shot. I've returned a lot of stuff at autozone/pepboys w/o a receipt. I'm sure they would probably work just fine, but I've never heard of anyone putting them in a BMW so I doubt you'll hear much if anything from someone on here who has put them in their car. I have a champion plug in my lawn mower though lol.

I'm going to put NGKs in eventually, but I have Autolites in mine right now with no apparent problems yet.

Funny.. the champion didn't work too well in the victor with 98 premium.. only use NGK in it now. Latest one is from a Mitsubishi Magna of all things!

Same for the BMW.. only NGK. Had bosch previously and the NGK seem smoother.

Yes... i'm a total car nut! Why else would I upgrade my mower to rev to twice its standard rpm!

I will only run NGKs in mine. Champions plugs are a good US Domestic plug, but weren't designed to run in the higher revving European cars. NGK Platinums = the only way to go

I'm sure they will work fine. Some people have had issues with platinum plugs and the aluminum heads. Frankly I never had a problem, but oem ngk plugs are copper cores, that's what I put in my miata as well. "higher revving european cars" doesn't mean much.
