BMW SERIES 3 E46 Series with Bremi ignition coil

Ive had incidents of Service Engine Soon light with shaking rough idling with my 2003 325i. The car seemed very underpower. I have about 52K miles on it. I extended the maintenance plan and also got extended GE warranty with 100 deductible. The dealer told me that the problem was misfire on cylinder 1 which is caused by bad Bremi ignition coil. The total was 211.96 on which I have to pay 100. He also

BMW SERIES 3 E46 Blew my 1st ignition coil problems oh my

Well add me to the list of ignition coil blowers. Blew one on the way to school the other morning and had it towed into the dealership. It only took them 3 hours to find the problem and fix it but I politely explained to the service manager that I didnt expect to be back in here for another one of these and he gave me one of those well your an idiot looks and acted like it was a widespread problem.

Three hours to diagnose a bad ignition coil Seems a bit much unless they just let your car sit for about 2 and a half hours Even though the evil Bad ignition coil problem is fairly common I would hope that a bmw Service Department would have an uncommon response to the problem that theyd be aware of the Service Bulletin for the E46 coils offer to diagnosereplace your other coils. However Ive had my

When it happened to me this past winter I rolled into the nearest service department (I was 800 miles from home) and they read the fault code and changed all 6 coils in less than an hour without an appointment. Definitely an all-5s experience. Unfortunately I never got a chance to tell the bmw survey folks about them - they must have copied down my phone number email incorrectly.

BMW SERIES 5 E39 e39 ignition coils recall

I took my 03 525 into the dealer today to have the DRLs shutoff and the airbag light tended to. While he was looking up my car on the computer he mentioned that the ignition coils need to be changed as well because of a recall. I dont really mind because its free of charge but its interesting to me to know if any of you guys knew about this issue

On these vehicles and these motors the BREMI ignition coils had problems with operation therefore it was neccessary to replace them with ones manufactured by BOSCH.Currentlyonly the E-46 M3s are equipped with the BREMI ignition coils and they have extended the warranty on those BREMI ignition coils in case they fail on the S54 engines.Simply putBREMI coils suck and BOSCH coils are the shiznit that works best and lasts long.Keep in mind that these are the pencil type ignition coils ONLY.

BMW SERIES 5 E39 Help Ignition Coil Replacement - ALL Needed Really

My mechanic besides wanting to charge us way too much for a simple repair says that we need to replace ALL the ignition coils rather than identify the coil(s) that is faulty. His rationale if one or more has gone bad they are all not far behind. I plan to do this work myself but do I really need to replace all of them

Per my cousin bmw guru ignition coil is different than tires . Lets say one tire goes bad then chances are the other 3 are also bad so replace all 4. But ignition coil is different. It may last 60K 100K or 200K. Plus when one coil goes bad you have misfire but it will not leave you stranded. But you will have a check engine light. So you can replace one ignition coil at a time. Use only bmw or Bremi brand.

Hello Changing my ignition coils soon i am stuck between the two makes one is Bosch and the other is Bavarian Auto high performance coils 10 more. I can buy either or but which one is good for the car and recomended Please help bmw E60 530i thank you BAV AUTO httpwww.ebay.comitmBavarian-Aut...f684c8&vxpmtr BOSCH httpwww.ebay.comitm6-Bosch-OEM-...5b9d08&vxpmtr

as that other entity uses equal or superior materials and controls their manufacturing processes. I doubt Bav Auto runs their own factory assembling product. They purchase from a third party manufacturer and have no direct control over the product they buy. Names like Bosch Bremi AC Delco Delphi Champion have been around for years and have developed long standing reputations for quality product. bmw

BMW SERIES 5 E39 Bosch or Bremi Ignition Coil

Hi All Tried searching the posts but could not get a definitive answer on which ignition coil to use. Got a SES code for cylinder 1 coil. I looked online and can only find Bremi brand coils for my car (02 530i production 1001). However when I changed my plugs this past weekend I noticed all the coils were Bosch brand (assume they are original factory installed Bosch coils). I read on several posts

The Part number listed on realoem.com ( 12 13 1 703 228 ) is the latest part number for the BOSCH ignition coils. The coils on the later vehicles (pencil type coils) are the ones everyone is talking about. I suggest calling your local bmw dealership and have them check the availability of this part number (or if it truly is NLA or No Longer Available). There was a recall on the BREMI pencil type coils

BMW SERIES 5 E39 2002-2004 Recall Notice For Ignition Coils

I got my Recall Notice in the mail yesterday (applicable to certain 2002 2003 2004 model cars) for replacement of the ignition coils. Seems they frequently fail causing rough idle and check-engine light to come on. Car will then fail emissions test. I took my 2003 530i in this morning and they had 6 ignition coils (one per cylinder) replaced in 35 minutes. I was out of there before I finished my cup

When I explained that I purchased my car new and that Ive not had them replaced they then said that my car was manufactured with the good Bosch coils and replacement is not needed. I called the toll-free bmw Customer Relations Dept they said the recall effects production

BMW SERIES 3 E36 Okada Projects Plasma Direct Ignition Coils

Has anyone tried these coils Theyre pricey (1189 for my E36 M3) but supposedly feature 100% secondary current (spark amperage) increase and 4 times spark energy increase. The only review posted on the horsepowerfreaks website says you really cant tell the difference in the performance but it looks cool I guess. Doesnt sound like theyre worth the price but perhaps someone else has something to say on

only a small weak source. Now you take a piece of paper and hit it with a blow torch. After 2 seconds almost all of that paper is gone. Thats the theory behind a better coil and plug. -Chad Youre making the case for improved plugs not coil. Improving plugs does minimal good without better coils. Try thinking at a higher level.

BMW SERIES 3 E46 325i Ignition Coil Issues Flashing Service Engine Light

BMW SERIES 5 E39 stud pulled out on ignition coil mount

I have a 1998 5401 aqurired at 66000 miles now at 90000. It developed a misfire issue recently that I narrowed down by following an excellent thread and swapping ignition coils and plugs in adjacent cylinders. It turned out to be the coil but as I was tightening down one of the nuts (with no more torque than any of the others) it seemed not to get tight. When I took the socket off to inspect the studpost

When I took the socket off to inspect the studpost seemed to protrude farther than the other posts. I was able to turn the stud with my fingers and actually pull it out. The end that had originally been fixed in the valve cover was threaded over its entire length but the fixed end that had pulled out appeared to have been covered in some kind of rigid epoxy or adhesive material. This my first bmw.
