Hey everyone my name is John and this is actually my 1st post .

So I was in the market for coils and like a lot of people I was torn between Bimmerlife and Precision Racing. Anyway even though Bimmerlife coils were plug and play I decided to go with Precisions kit because their coils seemed to handle more abuse (plus I personally have a few boosted VWs and I know how easily they can crap out. Also when I was a Service Manager for a VW dealer it's crazy how many we used to replace.) So I got a set of PR coils and they finally came in last month, I wasn't in a hurry for them because there is still other things my 335i needed to get done before the coils would even go on so the 2 months it took to get them didn't bug me. Plus they were pleasant to deal with when I would enquire about updates. So recently I starting seeing posts about Bimmerlife coils not seat correctly and also the dismay that there plug and play harness connectors are breaking easily. Around that time I also saw Precision Racing post that they have connectors in the works and soon their kit will be plug and play. I reached out to them and enquired about a set considering I just purchased a set of coils and have yet to install them, I didn't expect them to be free because I understood updates to products happen all the time (you don't bitch at Best Buy when the laptop you bought a month ago is now replaced by a newer one with better specs right?...well at least I dont) . Today I got a surprise when I got home, Precision Racing sent out a set of connectors to me at no charge which was awesome. So I thought I would do some internet justice and share some pictures of the connectors and how they look assembled. The connectors feel sturdy I manhandled them a little pulling them on and off the factory harness, they didn't feel like they were going to break. If I had 1 criticism about the connectors it would be the tab that locks the connector into the factory harness should be a tad shorter when pushed in all the way there is a slight gap and I feel that the connector be more secure if it was shorter. This most likely won't have any affect and I'm being over critical only time will tell.

I know this post is long winded, especially for just a bunch of connectors but eh it's the little things that make me happy.

Great post! I’m in the same boat as you and waiting to get the connectors to then install my PR coils.

I used the “contact us” section on the PR page and asked to buy a set of connectors. (Bought the kit a while back). Haven’t heard back from them. Hopefully they decide to sell the connectors only.

I had done the same thing last week and was told to check back with them mid-May. My original PR ignition coils are still in the box, unopened, since last July. I hope the Zebra cake is still good!

Just to update everyone, we have received Numerous emails (100+ easy) asking about our connectors from both old customers and new customers alike. To the best of my knowledge we have replied to all emails but it is possible some were not replied to by mistake and if that is the case we apologize. Production connectors have not arrived yet, tracking actually shows them to be arriving tomorrow. As soon as the connectors arrive we have some inspection to do as we made some slight tweaks to the mold based on the samples. As soon as they are inspected and approved we will get photos taken and have them listed on the website for purchase.

So with that said I would say check the website Friday or Monday under Replacement parts for connectors.
