Cost is not the debate, cost effectiveness is. Also, if they are not an improvement, they would not be considered a "tune". They're also not any more expensive than stock coils.I can't believe this is really a debate. There's 2 options, run stock coils or run R8's which may be slightly more expensive but if the cost difference breaks your bank you shouldn't be tuning your car anyway.

To be fair I'm not knocking anyone, period. All I want is some unbiased proof that the coils are better and I would buy a set this afternoon. My search for that proof has got me defending myself, which is pretty unbelievable.Have you thought about the fact that there are people on this forum that are already/have been where you are, have asked for advice/information for the same thing, and have come out perfectly fine or ahead of the game after "real world tests" by other fine forum members? You're knocking everyone who has gone through all the tests possible and are implying slightly that these tests aren't good enough. If that's the case, buy the coils from A**zon so that if they don't do what you want them to, you can send them back for free and get your money back. It's that simple.
food for thought...
Like I said, then just buy the damn things and see for yourself. If you like them, keep them. If not, return them. They're ~$85 for the coils and ~$35 for the iridium plugs. You're not going to get 100% unbiased proof because everyone has their own opinions. You're dragging this out more than it needs to be. Just f***ing do it already.To be fair I'm not knocking anyone, period. All I want is some unbiased proof that the coils are better and I would buy a set this afternoon.

+1.I mean, if you like being randomly stuck on the side of the road go ahead and use the stock coils.
I keep stock coils as a back up for my r8s, but I wouldn't use them full time.
