My Peake code reader told me that I have a bad ignition coil in cylinder 1. Could I just replace this one or is worth replacing them all?

Do what Jake said *first*....if the code shows up on cylinder #2, the coil is bad. Coils are pretty much like light bulbs, they either work or they don`t....no need to replace others if they`re not failing.

Sorry guys, I misread the code manual. Turns out I need a new intake camshaft position sensor. Thanks for the help anyways!:thumbup:

If it was a coil you only need to replace the bad one...with the same brand and part number. I found the OEM for a bad one on my 2000 323I at O'Reilly's auto parts.
