I agree with LOS - no need to mess with replacing coils unless they present a misfire problem. Most often, at least with the V8s, is the need to replace the valve cover gaskets at the same time as the plugs. If you have over 50K miles and have a V8, then I HIGHLY recommend replacing those valve covers gaskets because removing the coils is part of that procedure.
I also agree that realoem is a great site. They even include prices for some pieces which helps when camparison shopping at the local dealer or elsewhere (my local dealer offers a discount for BMWCCA members and so I often just get OEM stuff from them).
