Exclamation Spark Plug Change Video?

In the interest of the enthusiast community, I would appreciate if one of you gents or ladies make a DIY E9X M3 Spark Plug Change Video next time you change the plugs.

For someone who's car is coming off the factory warranty, this would go a long way

Not really sure it's necessary to be honest. If you know how to take the intake system and plenum off (I find the job easier when you do that), then it's more or less common sense. And if you don't know how to take those off, there are already picture tutorials in the DIY section.

It's not a hard job, but it certainly took me way less time to do my E36 M3. The back 2 spark plugs are kind of way back there. Feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions, I can probably help you out.

Just make sure you have the right tools, coilpack puller makes it go much faster as well as proper extensions etc.

Very straight forward job.

+1 OP...The current DIY's are pretty self explanatory.

I'm awful at video editing, but I can try and do a video for the first few + how to take the airbox and plenum off since my plugs are due within the next few thousand miles (will most likely do this in a few weeks anyway since I'll be off for more than a few days). Like stated earlier, though, it's not rocket science.

It would be much appreciated. The excellent video for the E46 M3 below is what I was hoping for-

Mine will be nowhere near that concise, hahahah. I'm awful at video editing, but I'll be sure to get the concept in order.
