The downside it the possibility the cheap coil packs will disappear once VW/Audi get over the embarassment of the two years of bad coils (2001-2002 apparently) and the ensuing recall. Personally, I just ordered another five for back-up.

Mark: I doubt there would be gains over a perfecty operating N122 and N 127
POS system and five perfect OEM coils and plug connectors. However, at this
point, it is better than what I had with a failing coil and/or POS killing
boost at WOT at speed. Now all I have is power delivery. ;>)
Yeah, but at $150 US to replace all 5 of your 1.8 coils... it could almost
be rationalized as part of a routine maintenance schedule. Whereas, that same
maintenance would cost $900+ US with the origianl setup.
With nearly 200K on my car, there is likely some degredation in coil
performance... I've never had to replace one. At $150 plus a little effort, it
seems like a good move for a high mileage car.
