Have you seen it since you had the E92? Think it's possible that it was left in the car after I gave it back to you at C&C that month?

Elaborate? When you say update, I take it you mean to just replace them with OEM, right? Has anyone on here put a Cobb on a 335 with around 42K miles and had any problems? I already have plugs on the way anyway as the car is barkin about needin em replaced, but I wasn't sure about coils. I doubt those are very cheap

since you are going to up the tune and the fuel out put on your engine, the spark needed for the engine to run fasters is bigger therefore your spark plugs will have a lot more work to do, so thats why when i got my cobb i did replace them with oem, and yes oem are really good quality spark plugs and coils are 42 dollars each so 260 for 6 (roughly)but those will hold up more than the plugs, i still haven't replaced my coils so you should be fine.

Yeah, I agree...I thought, at first, that you were trying to say I needed to upgrade my plugs for some reason... Coils could be worse, but still not as cheap as I'd like it to be LOL.

I didn't pay 42 a plug...Im pretty sure they can be had for about 12-15 a plug...

I took my car in for an oil change (maintenance plan) and they changed the plugs for me too...said it was time, so I let them.

the sooner the better and im down for that. I just got my Cobb in and installed and im getting misfires Thank god you can clear them on the go lol... My plugs are supposed to be here either tomorrow or monday... im guessing... they were in El Paso yesterday...

and as for the other post about 42 a plug, he wasn't talking 42 a plug, he said 42 a coil

****
EDIT
Oh I forgot... I'm running Stage 1 Agressive maps... Any suggestions on another map to run to prevent these misfires from happening until I can get my plugs swapped? I can drive it as is for now, i just cant go WOT without getting the misfires...

For the 1-2 seconds i get with it before it throws the misfires, yeah totally diff lol. I tried it on all stage 1 maps and it throws codes on all of them. Luckily, putting it back to stock prevents the codes.

thanks for the input on the tires they are great only had them on the car for a few hours and they seem a lot smoother and quieter ride, again thank you for the input Tomato

Are those the stock calipers? What kind of paint did you use? I've always wanted to do this but haven't known how to go about it.

stock calipers. Pull off the wheels, buy some caliper paint and paint it on. Nothing to it.
