[s-cars] The Audi Gods have struck once again!

OK, after cheerleading the 1.8T coil conversion recently on the list the
Audi Gods have taken notice and struck down any warm and fuzzy feelings I
may have once had regarding the 1.8T conversion!

I have run a harnes and coils from Apikol for 9  months now and about 17K
miles with no problems, the coils are of the "L" variety.  Passing a car on
a two lane road on the way to work this morning a coil decided it was time
to check out and I stumbled my way for another 3 miles or so making it to my
parking lot.  Called a local Vdub dealer and they have an "R" coil waiting
for me to pick up with a company car during my lunch break.

My question, is there a higher probablity that a particular cylinder
dropped?  At idle it is very hard to notice something is amiss, only when
running on the road is it apparent, very apparent that I have lost the
coil.  How do I find the correct coil to replace in my work parking lot with
a suit on?

Any suggestions?
