    If the ones that you presently have show no signs of failure, stick with them,
    as cheap replacements will probably cause more problems. Since ca$h is a problem,
    replace only the ones tested as causing misfires, with OE or OEM replacements.

    Note that you'll also need the coil boots (connect coils to spark plugs). These fail and cause misfires almost as often as the coils. And while you're there, of course you need to install a set of OE sparkplugs. I prefer NGK BKR6EK for your car, but this "KIT" may be your best bet:

    Buying RockAuto chinese crap coils is a waste of money and time.


    Unfortunately, Miky, the OP does not know which cylinders are misfiring.

    Sorry Chris and Jason, for letting my assumptions get in the way.
    That kit does seem to be a cost effective option, but FCP prices equally,
    BREMI Coils plus connectors 45.79 x 6=274.74
    NGK BKR6EK 3.99 x 6=23.94
    Total =298.68
    including the preferred plugs, lifetime warranties,+free shipping.

    Three really good reasons to choose FCP !
    Two more:
    They're very pleasant to deal with, and
    They're a big supporter of BMWCCA racing.

    Agreed with the suggestion to avoid cheap imports. If $$ is tight find the offending coil(s) and replace only what's needed. Used OE coils are cheap and would be my choice. Replacing all the connectors, the "plug wire" on this set up is a wise move at this age especially if there is or has been a rocker cover leak allowing these to get soaked in oil. Again, quality stuff only.
    I have a bunch of coils for your car and willing to offer them cheaply, PM if it interests you.

    Have you tried a stomp test for diagnostic codes on your vehicle?

    Miky, Ross: I have exceeded my endurance. We have above ~240 words....well, sort of words. ZERO punctuation, 47 misspellings, 20 damned sentences in one big ball, with not a goddamned period in sight. I cannot stand it. Good luck.

    Chris, totally understood,
    I can endure until all our suggestions/advice is ignored,
    then it becomes nil!

    I have an issue with edited posts getting mashed up, losing paragraphs. Perhaps part of the OP's problem as well.

    I've read through the thread twice and can't tell... Have you done the basic swapping of coil packs to help find the offending coil pack? Where I do normally suggest replacing all the coils, plugs, and boots at once; if you're in a pinch doing that little trick and only replacing the dead coil will at least get you down the road on all 6 cylinders again.

    You're very kind, but you've not seen the OP's other dozen threads, including his many claims that he just really doesn't care, and thinks we should all suck it up and "deal with it".

    240 words with zero punctuation? Nope....that's someone who really doesn't give a damn. And if he doesn't, why should we?

    Personally, I think if your coming somewhere asking for help and free advise you have to be on your best behaviour and as respectful as possible and also do as asked otherwise you go and pay to have your problem fixed.

    Yeah, I'm with Chris. I get paid to interpret and correct other people's writing - my tolerance for wading through it for free is essentially zero, especially when they willfully refuse to even attempt to communicate using the collectively agreed-upon linguistic conventions.

    I see. It's tough to help those unwilling to help themselves.

    I foresee this thread rapidly going off the rails in a way that no one under a certain age will understand at all....

    On that front, I've always found that it's beneficial to be a little hard on the Beaver.

    Aw shucks, O2Pilot, I think I just made your premonition come true.
