    If new coil packs doesnt solve it, it might be worth checking the wiring to the injectors with all the heat the plastic wire covers can crack and contact each other, although you dont have a fault code so it's probs not that. lol

    Hope it sorts it for you dude, OEM coilpacks FTW

    I'm pretty sure it's one of the packs. The ones in there are OEM quality ones from ECP and have lasted just over a year. The spark plugs are also a year old so I thought sod it, new parts all round

    Cheers Jason. Can you do me a price just for 8 coil packs as Tam and I will both do our coils before next weekend.

    We've ordered up 8 of the following plugs:

    The bolt down Hitachi's are OEM of course, but said to have much less issues. I think they were on a few golfs etc.

    Standard ones are push down. Older ones like whats on my AEB are bolt down.

    Yeh I had push downs originally and read that bolt downs were more reliable? You can even feel the quality difference with the hitachi ones. They are heavier - "heavy is good, heavy is reliable. If it does not work, you can always hit him with it." as Boris would say.

    Possibly. I know you can get the clamps to hold down the push fit coils so yeah you could be right. Would need to know exactly what model they were off. Sadly doesnt tell you what make they are on our system.

    Dont worry about it Jason, I've never had any real issues with the push down ones and I'm running out of time. I might try the bolt down ones next time if they are ok for a BAM engine?

    They've been fine on mine, producing good power, for the last few months. Touch wood.

    I'll grab the part number for next time. From memory they were actually cheaper! I've seen there's a kit to convert 2.0 TFSI coils too.

    I saw a talk on the A4 section of Audizine about using the TFSI coils and them giving actual power gains aswell. Need adaptors for them i think although might just be the A4`s that needed those.

    Not to Audizine but found this whilst searching: :| INA - 1.8T to 2.0T Coil Pack Adapters (TECH & FAQ) - INTRO PRICING |: - SEAT Cupra.net - SEAT Forum Late page 2 and page 3 are the bits that are more promising.

    Does it matter though westy mate? They didn't even ask me when mine were last changed or where from. They asked if I'd got my car serviced by them I said i take it to an independent specialist and that was that.

    Oh really? Did they definitely change all 4 of your coil packs?

    It doesn't matter too much now as I've now paid for them but it would be good to know.

    I don't have the part number for the coils to hand but they are the "E" type coils. I think it's 06B905115E. ECS sell them as their "Stage 1 Ignition Kit".

    Dave look back a few pages I had to cobble together some brackets to mount it to the crash bar. If you're able to though i'd recommend getting plates welded onto the side of the core for a neater fit.

    I fitted my new spark plugs and coil packs yesterday. Big thanks to Jason.S for hooking me up a big discount on the coil packs

    The slight hesitation I was experiencing under full load seems to have gone which is very nice. All the coils that I removed looked fine and the plugs were all sotty but no more than you'd normally expect. There was however a fair bit of oil around the plug that came from cylinder 2 which is a bit worrying.

    Looking forward to some dyno results Bill as there doesn't seem too much to backup the theory in the above link. What are your thoughts on the subject?

    I think it was just the little ring seal around the plug that was leaking slightly, dont think it was anything to worry about. (famous last words!)
