How to change spark plugs; anything unique? on 2006 Volkswagen Passat

Are there any hidden wire connections to sensors? Any special tools needed to remove coils from spark plugs? What are the best choice for replacement spark plugs?

To remove the spark plugs VW have a special tool but it basically a plug socket that will remove a 16mm/ (5/8) spark plug. their tool is 11 inches long and attaches to a 3/8 ratchet. To replace the spark plugs takes less than a hour, VW part # is 101905631B, or Bosch F6KPP332S , I like Denso plugs.
