hows it run afterwards? I know mine ran much smoother.
When did you paint your valve cover? did you do it yourself?
The 318i runs pretty good. Sadly, the day after I changed spark plugs I discovered a vacuum leak in my ICV hoses under the Intake Valve Head and my ICV is dirty and throwing me the rough idle and stalling the engine so until I fix all that I can't say for sure.
But clean plugs dont hurt. My gas milage was imporved. I never painted the valve cover it was always that color. I need to scrap that off, because its chipping and looks awful.
Pictures of my torn intake hose today after I discovered the leak. I had to tape it up, but the car is stalled!
