    I just replaced the coil packs on the 360 today. Man what a difference! Seems smoother, no pops on downshift, just all around better. I picked them up from powersparks on ebay from the UK for ~$50 each. Genuine Bosch. Others on this forum have used them before.

    $50 on ebay vs $200+ here. No idea how the prices in the UK seem to be so much less.

    Did the same thing, waited for an eBay promo code sale and got a stellar deal on all 8. Insane difference. the Ferrari box adds 500% ;-)

    May I ask how you knew they needed to be replaced?

    Misfires, rust forming, rough idle, etc.

    Is it a DIY job?

    Yup. Just unplug the pigtail to the old one, remove, install new, reinstall plug, finito. There has to be a cross reference for these btw....

    These COPs are just not advertised enough as being service items to be changed when plugs are changed IMO. They're not like old epoxy or oil filled heavy coils, new tech, new service. So many running on old ones, you don't notice until you swap to new ones.

    Yes my Indy shop says I’m on the originals and they need to be changed. I looked into the UK SITES. Unbelievable $389 for all 8 with shipping to the US. So I shall order soon.
    Thanks

    Get 8 new coil gaskets, cheap from Ricambi. I changed out mine, since it was in for a major, no extra cost to have them change the coils. Got mine from Green Spark plug, UK.
    Smoother idle, and did have a misfire code a while back that I cleared. No dramatic difference with new plugs/coils, but at the cost and already there....and keeping car long term...

    Bert is the coil gasket separate from the coil?
    I’m under the assumption that it’s just the coil that I need? Do I need to order gaskets as well? If so do you have a part #?
    Thanks

    167135, actually called a spark plug gasket. U could likely reuse old ones, but at $4 apiece and new coils, splurged.....
