Gee, I only have 93,000 or so on my 2002 VW GTi VR6 and it is still on
the original coilpack. I must be doing something wrong. Mind you, I
have had the temperature sender go out twice, three of the fuel
injectors die in one trip, the secondary air injection system valve
die, and a few other oddball problems, but the coilpack is fine.
