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

    :banghead: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!
