Bosch or Bremi were both oem

There was a recall back around 2005 for faulty coils. I think if you had Bosch, you got free new 6 coils.
Recommendation is to replace all six at a time.
If you don't, at least use the same brand.

I watched the video in this post and tried what the mech did - only issue is my car now runs fine. Must be a bad coil that is coming and going...

So, where does one get coil's for these that match the Bosch I have (oem) - WITHOUT replacing all of them. I'd like not to spend 300+ on 6 new coils and I read somewhere that it is recommended to replace all of them with the same brand as they may have different resistances... not sure about that, but I guess...

Everywhere I look, it says OEM is Bremi - but mine are Bosch???
