    coilpacks and spark plugs??

    can anyone tell me whats the best set of coilpacks and spark plugs to get for my s3 as iv had my car mapped

    but its misfiring so iv been told i need a set of original vw/audi coil packs and spark plugs and it should be fine?

    just rang VW tps in leicester and got quoted £180 for both so just want to make sure if i should be paying that or not?

    thanks

    BRK6EIX are direct replacements (irridium)... OE plug are platinums... I use BKR7E's which are coppers... last around 12k tops realistically, irridiums are designed for 40k changes... 7's are more for for power around the 300+ hp region, you shouldn't have any issues running 6's on a road car running stg1/2
