    How about using a set of OE coil pack adapters to hold it all in?

    I never knew there were OE adapters!

    I thought the sort of places you could buy them from were like awesome GTI.

    Didn't know Vag would have made them tbh for us 1.8t owners.

    I don't expect anyone knows how much they'd be?

    How do they actually hold them in without bolting to the rocker cover like the aftermarket ones?

    They have two pegs on them that are a nice fit in the bolt holes

    They were made for the v8engines I think, but I might ditch my adaptors for them!

    The ECS one you have are designed to stop them popping up not hold them secure...

    I did :)

    I've read that complete thread already and was contemplating the adapters from Aweseome (over 3 weeks ago mind! lol)

    I knew there were adapters about and the places to buy them- I just didn't know that within the last month there had been a significantly cheaper OEM option unearthed.
