    Question coil pack price?

    I need a new coil pack for my Z18XE. My local indy part shop quoted me 90 quid, but I have seen a new one on internet for 54 quid including postage.
    Is this too good to be true? The site is www.vauxcentre.co.uk. Based in Romford. Seems genuine enough.
    Obviously I like that price better, but I'm wary of giving out card details to a website I've not used before.
    Anyone used this supplier? My local shop normally pretty competitive, but maybe cutting out middleman is better. Just seems a big difference.

    not bad. Cheers for that. Its a used one but it might be worth trying that to check if it fixes problem then getting new one when im a bit more flush. In fact if it works problem solved!

    Wink

    well, i bought the magnatec 5w 30 oil for a tenner...couldn't resist at that price, got a t45 torx for my sump, and an oil catcher, just need to borrow my mates ramps at weekend. Been debating an oil flush but aint gonna risk it cos done 64000 miles and don't know if its been done before.
    As far as coil pack goes I was setting up pay pal account but couldn do it on phone. Mrs is moaning about me spending more on the car. As long as i can ferry her around she aint bothered! Will prob order it at weekend. . . If im allowed.

    It's nearly fine, it just misfires a bit in morning for first ten mins. Before I changed plugs it was horrendous, then fixing stat and temp sensor improved it still further. I just want to eradicate it completely...then I can start obsessing about suspension!
