- is this what i should get for the coil packs that you are talking about?
- for some reason i can not find the spark plugs on this site, where r they?
- evan - thanks again.
That should be it on the coilpacks
If I remember well you need the bosch irridium plugs (about $10 a piece)
Just give zeb at VW parts a call if you are not sure.
I am sure he has sold MANY
This is one of those maintenance things that almost anybody can do and save big
Just on labour ($500 -$80 = $420)
On coilpacks my dealer charged $52 a piece, so I saved $240 more and that did not require extra labor.
So DYI in my case saved me $700 for 1 hour easy labor.
I do not know that many people that make that much an hour. Do you?
This how dealers make money in my opinion
I am convinced that those plugs will easily do twice the amount of miles though.
The platinum plugs in my ford lasted longer than 100000 miles and were a lot cheaper(but a pain to install)
