    Well as some of you will know i had a coil pack give up on me yesterday... i had to unplug the injector and drive about a mile to pick up the new one... All sorted now...
    To be honest the car did feel a little down on power and slower to pull , It feels great again now but is it just the plasibo (sp*) effect?
    I thought they either worked or didnt??

    Its the same placebo as the hype behind the TFSI coils I reckon... fresh coils, stronger spark, more effective burn... arguably... :)

    TBH... my car always feels faster after spending some time driving my Mk2 Golf... soon get used to it... ;P
