Stuck Sparkplug

Hi everyone, changed the plugs on my 735i last sunday and am still having problems getting the #1 cyclinder plug out. I have shot that thing tons of penetrating oil and it still will not budge at all. I have ran the car and got the engine nice and hot and then tried to get it loose but still nothing. I bought the car about 2 months ago and have no idea when the last time plugs were changed on it. From the others that i pulled out no anti sieze was used on them. Is that plug in there for good or what else can i do? Thanks, Bob

3 options:

a) continue soaking and try tapping LIGHTLY the ratchet (counter-clockwise of course)
b) adding a pipe or long extension to the handle of your ratchet

and if it's borderline and you want to avoid the tow - c)have dealer or VERY experienced BMW tech attempt to remove it.
