In case you own a BMW E60 M5, you already know that every 37,000 miles (60,000 km) you have to change your spark plugs. It's not so often, but if you really love your car, you'll do this operation (and many others) personally.
In case your situation is perfectly described by the previous paragraph, we're here to help you out. The S85 engine is a monster. It's huge and powerful and looking under the bonnet, with the covers taken off, might make you dizzy.

Don't worry though, the DIY we're showing you here is easy and straightforward and you'll have no problem following it. All you need is a flathead screwdriver, 3/8 ratchet, 3/8 breaker bar, 6" extension, 3" extension, 5/8'' spark plug socket, Torx 30, 10 mm socket, right angle pick, magnetic pick-up tool, a torque wrench, OEM spark plugs ( part no. 12120032273, 10 of them) and a lot of patience.

When it's all set up, follow these steps and you'll be done in a matter of minutes (how many, depends on you and your skills). Good luck!
