Changing Spark Plugs for First Time, what should I gap my NGKs to?

Hello,

New to the forum. I'm changing my spark plugs on my 2016 M4 for the first time at 30k miles.

I am changing the OEM spark plugs and replacing them with the NGK Laser Iridium Spark Plugs #97506.

What should I gap the NGKs to?

My car is all stock and I plan to keep it stock until I'm comfortable with a bit of maintenance work.

Thank you.

-Sixty

Gap them to .022 for stock applications. I changed mine last week now at 30k and the car is running much better. They were changed at 20k with Bosch and started to misfire after 10k of driving.

I am considering this. Especially reading that they do come pre-gapped

Nice, I just read something on counterfeit NGKs...so now I have to be extra careful if I place an order for the NGKs. Thanks, I tried to look for the gap setting in the manual, but didn't see it.
