Long time reader, first time poster.

I thought I'd go to the effort of making an account to warn members about Rob Gale / blue lightning, you will lose 10 years of your life from stress alone if you try to help this man, he has been kicked from all of owners groups that I use regularly.

List of some particularly famous RG events:

Convinced his DA905RS turbos are not Chinese.
Reckons you need closed deck to run hybrids because his local mechanical said so.
Bought a BPM4 ekp module to run mhd stage 2.
Fit a 12v bilge blower to his airbox duct to help with intake temps.
Headgasket leak putting 4 pints of water into his exhaust that magically fixed itself when he realised n54 headgaskets don't fail


Maybe someone here can save this man, I wasn't worthy

Hey Blue Lightning, I would stay away from those "performance upgraded" coils. Check these out: https://www.fcpeuro.com/BMW-parts/340i/Ignition-Coil/?year=2018&m=20&e=17477&t=5&b=5&d=15456&v=

We have a version for the stock valve cover that will be available for pre-order tomorrow and will begin shipping mid-late February! Pictures coming shortly!

On the stock N54 coils I ran into misfires at 560 whp above 5200 RPM with a 0.022" gap. Car runs out clean on more boost now with the same gaps on the B58 coils.

Those type of gains are unlikely unless you're experiencing misfires.
I wouldn't bother trying to help blue lighting, he is extremely rude and hostile to anyone who disagrees with his local mechanics opinion.

Obviously you were just trying to help, you didn't know he was UK based and fcp don't post here, and you're "dumb" for that! Madness!

SIR......who do you think you are to start spreading hateful lies about me or anyone else in this group / thread ??.

If I have offended anyone in this group, they have every right to say so and report said comment. However the fact is, this is a peaceful Group with people sharing their experiences and knowledge........... NO ONE is interested in your lies or attempts to sew discourse within this group. May I suggest that if you wish to continue with your line of incite-full hate speech, you find an alternative group !.

Rob, you've been kicked out of nearly every n54 related group that there is.
I imagine it'll be the same here before long.

Please Sop with you LIES....... I have had to leave a number of Groups voluntarily because of your offensive trolling !. You have followed me like a crazy person from one group to the next trying to cause arguments and upsetting myself and anyone else I am having a conversation with. I can assure you I will be reporting you to the Admin's in this group too !

I am fed up to the teeth with your persistent harassment and trolling behavior !. LEAVE ME ALONE !!!!.

They do fit perfectly after simple one time 1min modication. They tap on the sparkplug just like the OEM coils do and are the cleanest setup as you don't need a bracket or modify the engine cover.

Maybe your information/experience around using these coils is out dated?

Buy whatever solution you like. They all work fine. There are severals cars doing 650whp+ on the stock Eldors so any coil perfoming above that grade is more that suitable for the job.

To finish it; There are a lot of N54's running R8 coils that have been proven to be reliable :) Go ask Wedge what he recommends to put in.

This is a paying vendor's thread about THEIR product. Your posts are off topic and just muddle up an otherwise very informative thread.

Why don't you start your own thread about the R8 coils?

So validity of the data in the "very informative thread" is of no importance? If a person's opinion/experience does not match with the posted information, this person should ideally fuck off? Wow

I've been a lurker for quite some time and most of you keep looping in the below noted scenario most of the time. Person after person have collided with most of you on these forums yet nothing was learned.

Just to be clear, the following just happened;
- Person X started bashing an alternative solution.
- Person Y suggested person X is providing false information. Backed with concrete information, personal experience and one of the most popular tuners.
- Person X and Z have nothing more to add and now resort to downvoting and telling off people.

Total lack of ability to have a proper discussion on a discussion forum.
You better check a few posts back who the 2 persons where that started ranting about R8 coils. Don't be suprised by a strong reaction if you are posting strong, and especially false, allegations.

There is nothing wrong with the Nexsys solution. Hell, if you don't care about the cosmetics, it's probably the best solution you can get at the moment. However, it's not justified to downplay alternative solutions with false information.

Back to Nexsys discussion...

So... I'm "I-was-born-literally-yesterday" new here, and honestly I'm still learning... But I think what you're arguing and what you think you're being bashed for are two different things here...

There's absolutely no denying that that using R8 coils produces amazing results as evidenced by da interwebs and your buddy (we all have a buddy; our buddies know everything... why are we even here?), but the "issue" is the philosophy in their use. Now I could be completely wrong - so someone kindly correct me if that's the case - but R8 coils essentially work by failing primarily in their intended use and discharging its electrical load secondarily as a very well designed failsafe which is where you and the homies profit. The B58 coils simply succeed in their primary use as a semi-OEM solution, and on top of that, they offer better results if @bahn's fake-news-ass research is to be believed. ;)

In my Simple Rick mind, that makes the B58's the superior choice between the two, AND Nexsys' solution sets us up to try to run whatever superior coil comes out for the S58 in our N54/55's in the future. That makes me happy. Let me be happy, @Lightning.

When the PR fanboy jumps into the thread, I promise you we can bash him... together. Until then, have a Snickers, buddy.

I currently have the PR coil set-up and haven’t experienced any issues with it...Besides the shear bulk of the setup and if one fails you basically have one source for parts.
Having a “OEM”ish solution that holds up to the added performance modifications to me makes sense. As for the cost I can look past knowing this was designed and an priced in what has become a ever declining platform.
Definitely have no issue supporting small business owners. Lol if any of y’all come to Houston send your girls “or yourself” to my nail salon 👍🏻😂. Ok the girlfriend runs it I just pay the bills.
Wow I went all kinda off topic it’s Monday morning hope everyone has a fantastic week!

Please for the love of god, if you have opinions contrary to the agenda in THIS paid space, voice it in our octagon. It's designed specifically for airing out your laundry with no fear of removal.

Have some respect, I would hope you wouldn't walk into my brick and mortar shop and blabber on about the competition, I would show you the door.

I can't even find the octagon anymore on mobile. Used to be able to, but updates and such have made it difficult. Only way I find it is if somebody posts and gets bumped up to "new posts".
Sucks because I feel I'm missing a lot of the action.
:(

Sorry Bahn, carry on Sir.
Consider it a free bump :)
