[s-cars] Coil and POS woes

I know the feeling.  On S6 #1 (sedan) I chased and chased and eventually did 
a successful POS rewire, but I never felt another failure right around the 
corner.  When S6 #2 (Avant) hiccuped for the first time I didn't hesitiate - 
I got right on the phone and ordered an 034 HO kit.  Of course while I 
waited for the kit to arrive the car never missed a beat, but I nonetheless 
tore all the stock stuff out and replaced it as soon as I got it.  Heck this 
is  a problem with a bolt-on answer.

There are those who will say the HO kit is extreme and less expensive 
alternatives work just fine, and they may well be correct - but I haven't 
worried about ignition since I installed it.  Now I only fear the multitude 
of other things I know which can (and probably will) go wrong...

95.5 S6, 95 S6 Avant
