Sorry, i was being a wise A$$. I bought their N55 coil kit that was advertised to fit the N55. It had to be hacked together to be installed. I contacted them recently and was told that they now have a bracket for the N55, but they want $70 for it. My point being, I'm mad that I had to cut my engine cover and jury rig a buch of things to get the coils installed. My point to you is that they still exist as a company. Call them or hit them up on social media, if they don't reply to your email.

When did you order your coil kit? Mine's been sitting in the box waiting for a good time to try to get it on, but I'm not sure if I got the new bracket or not.

Gotta say, my customer service experiences with PR have been excellent, even late weekend emails have been responded to super quickly.

I'm planning on these being my next purchase. Are people still having fitment issues due to whatever intake they have?

I have the AFE (which looks just like the BMS) intake and you just have to flip the one coil over that the intake lays on top of. Very simple and fits fine.

Yes, I have E90 N55 with Injen intake and can confirm there are fitment issues even with the new bracket. I have modified the bracket so all of the coils lay flat(allows maximum clearance for coils between intake manifold and intake piping). Intake coupler puts pressure on 3rd cylinder coil if I use the support that attaches to intake manifold. Going to add extension to intake support so it will clear.

Do you have the newest bracket? Could you post pics if your issue.

Yes, I received new bracket from fresh batch they just got in.

First 2 pictures are before modifying the bracket, just to show clearance issue with intake.

Other pictures show installed coils on modified bracket. Also, probably a good idea to run a piece of reinforced vacuum line like I did in pictures. I couldn't find a way to route the stock line without having it kink or get pinched by coil mount.

Interesting, first I've heard of an issue with the vacuum line. Thanks for the pics.

The stock vacuum hose fit fine once re-routed when installing the coil bracket. There is no reason to replace it as far as I know (2011 335i E90 N55)

The line "fits" if you don't mind it being slightly pinched and rubbing between the coil bracket and coil. Please post some pics of how you routed your line. Considering it takes less than 5 minutes to replace and having the reassurance it will not fail in the future is good enough reason for me lol

Not sure where the messages have went, but I assure you we are here and not going anywhere anytime soon... You can reach us at [email protected] or at 1-877-447-6297 whichever works best for you.
Can you please clarify if the updated version of you E series N55 coil packs will fit without any modifications? Or with what intakes it will fit without any modifications?

I'd like to know as well. Has anyone else installed these in the last year since Houtan asked? Also for the E series guys, what did you do with the three cables running across the back of the engine that clip into the plastic cover/heat shield? It's my understanding that the cover will no longer fit.

Would love to hear an update as well. I ended up buying a set of Delphis from FCP Euro to replace my OE coils with 56K Miles on them for the time being.

As for the cables, I had to deal with this after installing a PI place since the heat shield would fully fit back on. I just zip tied them together in a couple of place and also to the strut bars (not super tight on the strut bars) and they seem to be fine. I will try to take some pictures the next time i open up that area.
