I always use the washers and apply some anti-seize to the threads.

DO NOT apply Anti-Seize to spark plug threads. You will end up overtorquing
the plug and stripping out the thread in the head. Also, he Amnti-Seize is an
effective insulator that changes the heat range of the spark plug. Many
spark plug makers specifically say not to use Anti-Seize.
This is a subject thread that goes around all of the BMW lists every year or
so. If you google the thread, you will see that all the "I think I know what
I am doing so I am an Internet expert" guys recommend Anti-Seize on spark
plugs, the manufacturers and successful tuners do NOT. Draw your own
conclusion. It is one of those things that SEEMS like a good idea, but it is not.
