Best brand of glow plugs?

Hi everyone, I may need glow plugs for my e99 and I was wondering in your experience what the best brand of glow plug to buy would be? Thanks!

ya i just changed my dads they were zd-11. so where mine when i did them 2 years ago.

a 10mm deep socket is the easiest way to get them out.
1/4 inch drive would be the best because the socket sometimes gets hung up and you want the smallest socket you can fit in there.
