MINI added Coil-On-Plug technology in 2007 eliminating wires all together to make a better working system. The problem is, and more so in the Coopers than the Cooper S's, is that we found that MINI keeps their spark plugs in longer than they should based on recommended service intervals. That in turn makes the coil pack work harder to make sure the cylinder is working correctly. That then burns the coil out before it should ever need replacing. How do you know if you need a new coil pack? The car will give you a SES light (Service Engine Soon), as well a rough idle, and once you read the codes it comes back to a misfire or coil pack for cyl. X. A sure fired way to know that it is that coil pack is to move it to another cylinder and see if you get the same code for that new cyl #. We have seen a few Cooper's this year with coil problems at early as 60K. The MINI Cooper S's is not immune to this problem but we have been finding that it is in less numbers and higher mileage. We highly recommend replacing the spark plugs at this time also. You don't alwasy have to replace all 4 coils at the same time, but you can. Also, to help save costs, we will be selling you the same coil in the car, a Bosch or a Delphi unit depeding on car modle. But it will not come in a MINI box. It comes direct from the maufature to take out the MINI markup.
Note: Sold as each.
Note: Cooper Coil Pack shown in the photo, but we send the correct part for an S if selected.
