    Thumbs down GSF

    Do not buy coilpacks off them,my mate had some and they failed almost immediately after fitting and apparently its a common fault,all the other bits off them are top notch but coilpacks and GSF don't mix

    Swap to bolt down hitachi items. They never go wrong.

    I forget later cars have the coils with the intergral output stage. So the bolt down ones won't work for you.

    My mistake.
