they usually go in pairs when is the last time you changes spark plugs? old/bad spark plugs shorten coils life significantly

195,000. I think after 287,000 miles, losing a coil is not a bad record... On the way home, the flat tire monitor lit up too. And last Friday, the ABS system burped. A scan showed he left rear wheel speed sensor had a headache, but has seemed to repair itself. I have new tires coming next week, so no worries about the TPMS.

My 1st-world problem is the Z4 has an exhaust in need of repair, which is sitting in the back of my truck to go to the weld shop tomorrow.

I think it's a 328 manual...

Once one of my coils failed they all started going out. There is apparently one of those things at the dealership that tells them if one goes out they should replace all of them. When my second one went out they didn't have enough in stock but when the third one dropped a couple of months later they just replaced the remainders...I had them go ahead and replace all of the plugs at the same time. I was still under CPO.

I believe it's an '06 325i. If I remember right, it's the highest mileage one in the U.S.

Lol. Glad to see that you are still driving her daily. I'm surprise that you haven't hit 300k yet. My radiator busted and fried the alternator. Not bad since she's got 214k

Finally truth be told lol. Like someone else said, how is the oil consumption on it? Auto or manual? Any major maintenance you did on the car? If I remember correctly, the 335I has a different engine internally (same size) as the other 3 series models.

I wrote a complete history of the car at 200,000 miles in January 2013. I updated at 265,000.

Oil consumption down to about 4,000 per quart.

I got the Z4 put back together last night so I got at least one set of wheels to drive. I'm going to scan the E90 and make sure it's a coil. I'll see if I can get a rack of coils today and I'll throw some plugs in it if I've got it opened up. Tires should arrive from Tire Rack today as well. I've got a full day planned tomorrow to get the tires mounted (I'm switching back to the stock 17" sport package set up just for kicks and grins) and get the ignition taken care of.

Wish I had installed AC in the shop...
