Doing plugs, air filter, etc. Trying to salvage a few more MPG out of the blue car. Any other suggestions? What brands do most of you guys/gurls use?

All OEM stuff. I get a good discount at the dealer with my BMWCCA membership. Stay away from Advance and Autozone...

I have the bosch platinum +4. Dont lecture me on them, I already know they are overpriced and their performance is lacking supposedly. It was more a peace of mind purchase.

For a Filter I use an OEM one.

I bought a K&N air filter, Bosch +4 plugs. I'd recommend a Hot Soak with some Seafoam products from NAPA.

If you're doing an oil change, I used BMW 5W-30 with a Mann oil filter.
