Replaced them (along with new NGK platinum plugs) the day after going stage 1. No issues so far.

have you confirmed that one of the R8 packs was actually the root cause of the misfires and had itself failed?

I hope you do realize other sensors DO cause misfires.

This is really almost impossible to quantify. 95% of the time Bad plugs, poor gaps etc take out the coilpaks. Those guys just swapping in new paks (MANY here, you know who you are!) are ignoring the underlying issue. I have 1.8T friends with 180K ++ on original coilpaks, but they maintain their cars..

Couldn't agree with you more there!

Upgraded to stage 2, coil burned within 5 days :-)
Ever since (about 5k) running revision E ones (last revision) and no issues there.

I do have 2 of my old ones in the trunk haha

have had NO issues at all since installed ~16000 miles ago.

i think there are also red vw stock coilpacks. so the red color doesn't necessarily mean that they are r8 coilpacks. just sayin. i could be wrong though.

Used since stage 1 and 10k mi or so. K04 now @ almost 40k. Stock plugs; never changed those - just the coils. No misfires no problems.
