While at this topic; what is your position on applying the anti-seize to the threads on the spark plugs. I hear many conflicting views:
A. some would argue that some brands have chemicals which under extreme conditions will contribute to the deterioration of the threads on the head itself.
B. Others will argue no harm is done to the threads when copper-based compounds are used. What is your take on this?
c. Some will go as far as saying anti seize may produce a torque multiplying effect. This can lead to thread distortion resulting in head damage.
Either way, do we know if BMW dealers use these compounds when installing spark plugs? If so, which brand/type?
