    coil packs for a 210bhp S3 are £27.91+VAT = £32.09 each form Audi part number M A06B 905 115 E

    Euro car parts sell them but i don't know how reliable they are?

    I had two go on mine last month. Im not a mechanic but managed to change all four myself saving on labour charges. I had it serviced last wk at midland vw and was informed it is always best to change them all to be on the safe side.

    Dont buy the copies, buy the genuine ones. The pattern ones are known not to be as hard wearing.

    I had one go on my LCR and the next week another went. I'd recommend changing all 4 to be on the safe side and ask to keep the one's that haven't gone as spares in the boot just incase any of the go again.
