Yep
As I think that it's latest type of coils and less prone to failure than our for me bremi coils I have to keep stock of this cause I know one day suddenly it'll die within the year every year have to change 2 coils if not more
So if I retrofitted e60 style like my brother e46 have the same style he never changed it
Like me
