Roll call for Those with R8 Coilpacks: Reliability Feedback Wanted

Had problem with my stock ones on stage 2 around 56k. Swapped the coil packs for R8 ones and haven't had an inkling of a misfire since (83k)

I just figured I would post that thus far, I have not needed to spend the extra money on R8's. If I need to later on, then I will.

OK.... again, not what the thread called for. Most don't blow packs that early on anyway, stock or not.

I'm not familiar with the KTN designation at the end of the part number, but 06E905115E is the correct part number for the R8 coilpacks.

R8 coils have been on the car since day one, 100 miles.

Been k04 for the last 10k... 11k on the car.
Will update when I put some miles on my GT3071.

Just put R8 coils in my 2009 GTi not even 10 miles on them yet. Will let you know how it goes, but so far so good.
