My Ride: MKV GTI
FS: M3 Ignition Coils

BMW service center told me I had misfires and that I needed to replace the coils, so I snagged these off of eBay for $120 last fall from a 2003 M3 I believe, it was well under 100k miles and the coils performed flawlessly when I swapped them into the 330i I had. The car turned into too big of a project (hint: the coils weren't the problem), and now it's being sold. Looking to get these coils into the hands of a fellow fanatic.

$60 shipped, $50 local pickup.

Thanks!

I believe there are two different types of ignition coils used in the e46. I easily installed the ones I had in the 2003 330i that I had purchased them for.

From the Bentley Manual:

"M3 and 2003-2005 models: New design compact Bremi manufactured ignition coils are used."

Attached is a closer picture of the coils I have and an image from the Bentley manual to show the kind you likely have.

Thanks for your interest!

these coils are meant for cars from production date of 09/02 and later, the cars before that date used bremi coils, a bit different shape.
