There were a lot of bad coils manufactured in 2003. I had a 2003 X5 that started acting up and it turned out to be the coils, all were replaced under warranty.

My daugter's 2003 GTI had the same problem.

These were Bremi coils and 99% of them were replaced under warrenty. The one's I had to replace were Bosch. Coils fail. Just a fact of life.
