Selling my bimmerlife R8 coil setup. Coils have been modified to seat fully. I am the one who actually caught this flaw so trust they do sit 100%. Make some offers and lets see where this goes. If @doublespaces can rotate pic plz. Dunno why it loaded that way.

please share homie
The harness and coils were never plug and play. Coils needed to be trimmed to fit. Harness didnt fit as advertised. Alex is such a prick that he didnt replace the harness. He wants to sell one at a discounted price to most. I modified the harness to work. Cyl #5 had to have wires extended and the main plugs / connectors plug into the factory coil leads and are held together with heat shrink. In my car everything looks super clean and works without issue. But I know where I cut, trimmed, extended, etc and why. So I dont want the headache of selling, new owner doesnt understand whats going on and not fitting things properly and have it not work correctly for him or her. Aside from that, for me to let them go the price would be up there because of the headaches I went through to get the proper fitment and results. This SHOULD have been done by the vendor and let him collect the profits. He did not, and I was stuck with it and then shared my findings with others who took it a step further and created topics on here to help others.

Yeah man, so this is why Id rather keep them. I dont want for anyone to not understand why I did what I did and then say I burned them. Just not worth the (possible) headache.

Hi! Do you know if the new ones that BL is selling have this issue corrected/fixed? Do they new ones offered by BL are trouble free or do they still have some issues?

Thanks

You would have to ask in the forums. I would NOT trust asking BL direct.
