I got mine from ECS for $250 IIRC. As the old adage goes, you get what you pay for... do you want a coil that'll last 100k miles or 10k miles/less?

Just replace the bad one. You don't need all 6.

I bought my 6 Bosch coils on fleabay. They seemed to offer the best deal w/ no shipping cost and no tax... Just a matter of hunting although I'd go with Bosch.
