Ignition coils and plugs: Is this kit worth it?

ECS has a kit for about $200 less than the OEM components. Worth it?

The OEM kit is still around $400 even with my discount.

Here's a kit on FCP with the Delphi coils (I thought I read they're the preferred coils?)

https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/bmw...12138616153kt5

Also, everything FCP sells has a lifetime warranty.

That kit comes with dielectric grease. I thought someone said we're not supposed to use dielectric grease or am I thinking anti-seize?

No anti-sneeze but dielectric grease should be fine. I've never used it but just a light coat on the plugs might help, who knows.
