        Scotty, if you take off the horizontal shelf (above the firewall) it makes life a lot easier. It's 5 min well spent since it will give you much better access to everything. There is also a special tool to pull the coil assemblies. Case in point: I replaced all the coils and injectors within 2 hours - and I am not a professional mechanic like you. (My personal tip: Since the packaging is pretty tight on the E90 335i, the disassembly is very sequential and it helps to first consult the Bentley manual to figure our the right sequence. I would contend that if you had done so a lot of your complaints would go away.)

              It takes like 2 minutes to remove the rear cowling above the number six cylinder. It takes less time to remove it than the amount of time you complain about no working room

                Instead of using six different extensions to be able to reach sparkplugs on bank 2, he should have just removed the cabin filter and the cowl and they would have been fully accessible. The removal of air filter was absolutely unnecessary. Of course, the purpose of the video is to entertain, and this guy has no clue what he is talking about.

                  Bla bla bla bla, stupid this stupid that.... moan groan and complain...... an amateur thinking he's a professional. If you got such a problem with BMW's, maybe you should go back to the early 70's vehicles.

                        you are supposed to remove the cabin air intake. That makes it much easier to Access

                          BMWs are performance cars that beg to get driven hard. If you want reliable, buy a tractor.

                            Sorry but i have never had an unreliable BMW, all cars need regular maintenance, if you don't maintain a car it will break down.

                                    Pull the cabin air filter housing house. 3 minute job. Pop the coil real quick with a short pry bar. Bobs your aunty.

                                      Funniest part of this video is he’s 8 bolts away from removing that entire top micro filter cowling but he instead struggles under the cowling... typical Scotty 😂

                                          So far ive found my 01 325i wagon to be the easiest car ive ever worked on. Cooling fan was a snap... literally, one screw and about 4 plastic snaps. Alternator... easy. Rad hose... snaps right into place. Idler and tension pulleys... right up front 👍(try that in a toyota 😂). Ive got some old cars that has room to crawl around the motors and so far id rather work on the bmw.

                                              The plastic crap weighs less and number 6 is way back there to make BMW the best balanced cars in their class. For me it’s worth the extra money for the pleasure.

                                                        I bet you would have to remove the interior filter box and then you can easily access the rear spark plugs. At least that's what it's like on the E46.
                                                        Oh and Scotty, just to save you time just replace all 6 coils and toss the bad one and keep the remaining used good ones for whenever you'll have a fault again and have to wait for a parts delivery.

                                                          This is not the Kind of Mechanic you bring a BMW to. He's ham fisted and will crack your parts then complain they're plastic. He does not understand the bmw design philosophy. Easiest cars to work on and everything is put together with logic. This is a classic example of Bias. Toyota does the same thing under the hood and is more maintenance intensive then a BMW, fact!!! Toyota and BMW BOTH work together so your Toyota is a BMW anyway lol.
