Time for a coil?

On my 00 323Ci,

Peake table 15:
EF- cylinder 2 misfire
01- coil 2
95- capillary leak >.5mm

Guess its time for a coil! Gotta do the valve cover gasket anyway...might as well do plugs too.

What else should I do at that point? All the coil boots?

Oh, its got 134K on it. Belts and cooling system are in good shape.

Replace all six with the boots It should take you only a few minutes to do.

Yes all six coils and new boots if you have one coil bad there could be others getting ready to go bad shortly after. Boots as a precautionary measure and peace of mind. Nothing feels better than knowing you fixed the problem and did it right.
