    I think I'll get one of these. Previously avoided as most weren't neodymium magnets and also i wasn't entirely convinced of how securely the magnet was fixed to the rest of the plug. But having done a little googling on gold plugs, seems like they dont have this issue.

    I think the issues were with the cheap Chinese ones that were known for the magnet snapping off in the drainage hole :eek:

    Hi

    The only metal in the engine that a magnet is effective on is iron and as far as I am aware, the pistons and rings in a E92 M3 are iron. In E36s and E46s, the cylinder liners are also iron. The crank and various other components are iron, so a lot of the places where wear is going to take place is made of iron.

    Cheers

    Tim

    I'm fairly certain the pistons for the S65 are aluminium. There does seems to be much value in using a magnetic plug for the S65 (E9X M3).

    I have just tried to order one of these too and it's telling me the M3CUTTERS is not a valid promo code?

    Cheers :thumbsup:

    Sorry about that, the club discount code is M3C but it would make sense to have M3CUTTERS as a valid code as well. Both of these will now work.

    Cheers

    Just ordered one of these for my up and coming oil service cheers guys.

    Went for the AP-11 as advised above.

    My car is also a 2004 M3 with a Manual gearbox.

    Do you advise changing the O ring after each service?

    Thanks

    Ash
