Best Spark Plugs For BMW M2

Genuine BMW, Bosch OEM, or NGK OEM spark plugs are required by BMW. The ignition system is designed to use these spark plugs from Bosch and NGK, who were original suppliers to BMW for spark plugs. We only advocate direct replacement spark plugs because they maintain the engine running at its best and get the most out of your performance modifications.

Now, that’s not to say the M2 Competition isn’t powerful. Its 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged straight-six has a 405-hp and 406 pound-foot of torque. It’s the same engine as the 425-hp M4, but it’s been detuned and, in my opinion, feels better in the M2 than in its bigger brother. Because two little turbochargers are used instead of one big turbocharger, jamming the throttle produces a near-immediate response, and BMW’s electronic nannies do an excellent job of sorting out traction while also leaving me with nothing but a bunch of torque pushing me to the next corner.

I think it’s very interesting that you bring this up because there are some powerful things to be learned here. To summarize: Slides may be done by dialing back the intervention in M Dynamic mode, which allows me to indulge my inner hooligan without risking a fall into the woods, but I recommend avoiding such activities when tracking. Leave everything at its default setting and there’s still a lot of fun to be had with minimal risk of things going out of hand.

The S55 sounds considerably better here, with the odd engine noise of the M4 subsiding in favor of a raucous growl that evokes warm recollections of everyone’s favorite ivory-pedestal I6 BMW, the E46 M3. The twin-flap exhaust note sounds great in any car and having the windows down to listen to the music is half the fun.
