    Coil pack failure after remap... just unlucky?

    Car is a 2007 2.0T FSI quattro S-Line SE

    It was remapped on Thursday by a reputable (but for now, nameless) tuning company.

    Saturday morning a coil pack let go. This is the first issue I've had with the car after 8k miles I've driven it.

    Does a remap have anything to do with the coil packs?
    Would it have happened anyway, maybe later rather than now?
    Is the timing just a coinsodence as I realise it's a comon fault?

    Coil pack's tend to go so remap not at fault. I alway's carry a spare in the boot. You should buy one or two as spare's from TPS or GSF

    Exactly the same happened to me, this week... Remapped last Thursday, coil pack went this Thursday evening gone! Just bad luck I guess. Did have me worried though when it started firing on three cylinders with the engine management light on!
