2012 118I Coils
Hi Guys


Had my cylinder #2 coil blow a few months back,replaced it with a new coil but put the new one in cylinder #1.

Today on my way home accelerated and started to misfire ,got home and checked..... Cylinder #2 coil blown again.

Wondering if I should just replace the 3 old ones instead of waiting for them to fail?Fencelook

RE: 2012 118I Coils
Best thing is to change all four at once. These coils normally pack up and when one goes so does the others soon thereafter.

I'll replace the 3 old ones and keep the 2 that haven't blown in the boot for emergencies
