Maybe they have a new smaller size silverstonne or else the cheaper copper plugs were sent to you. M3 plugs are small in diameter, like motorcycle plugs. The Bosch XR4CS silver plugs can be fitted though they can be hard to find. They are cheaper than the silverstone too. Stock gaps are around 0.028 although you can always try larger ones. I'm running 0.035 at the moment. If you are really picky you can "index" the plugs so that the gap faces the intake valves.
