Shocking the threads with a hammer or air chisel is always a good idea on anything that goes into aluminum. Since glowplugs are so cheap and replaced upon removal Even Porsche service manuals tell you to get the 12point head-bolts a solid whack if troublesome to remove and I've had a couple I thought were going to break for sure.

Another interesting method I came across on youtube involves some drilling, tapping, and slide hammering but worth taking a look at if you're all out of other options.
