Looking to replace my cracked ignition coils following an advisory at my last service. All working fine at the moment so not in any hurry but plugs are overdue so will do both together.

EuroCarparts / Carparts4less have either Bremi or Beru available. Having searched this forum and the web I can't seem to find anything negative about the Beru so I'm thinking this is the way to go. Has anyone had any experience of the Bremi version? Dont know

I fitted Surefire coil packs last year, so called 'high performance', one of them shorted to ground a couple of months ago and I needed to have the car recovered! Nightmare to diagnose as the fault code pointed to an issue with the injectors having a short circuit/low voltage! Only managed to work it out with Dermot's much appreciated help!

Beru coil packs now fitted and a lesson learned!

By chance, does anyone know who make the OEM coil packs? Thinking of swapping mine just as part of routine maintenance.

So that's decided then, Beru it is (which I assumed was OEM anyway).

Anyone know if the swap will require the longer screws or will the original ones be fine on a 2007 C2S?

The Beru units come with new screws supplied. I swapped mine last year when fitting a Kline system. CP4L are good value and I went Beru plugs from the same supplier.

I think Beru are the OEM .. might be a different company on the later cars though .

New coils are double the size of the old ones , they come with new screws and are a male torx head so you need a female torx socket to fit ...

A little ally grease on the bolt threads wouldn,t go amiss either Smile
