    Help please think I need new coil pack but not sure which one

    Hi all my car has been running like s**t lately, really lumpy and juddering, the juddering is intermittent though, so I checked the coil pack and it's got good spark from numbers 1,3,6 and 5 but 2 and 4 is only sparking a little, not as much as the others, so my question is
    1. Would this cause the car to run like it is and
    2. The part no I have is 078 905 101c, does it matter if the part I buy has an A at the end instead of a c,
    The cars a 2.6 v6 quattro on a p plate. Thanks for any replies

    I think the 2.6 has 3 coils, running wasted spark, so if one failed it would make sense that two cylinders would have a weak spark.

    Theres a "C" part on ebay.
