Does anyone know if the earlier style silver engine cover (325/330) is interchangeable with the newer black cover (from the 328)?

Wow. I had to change an ignition coil. I wasn't prepared to spend 1 hour to remove/re-install that nonsense engine cover and 1 minutes to change the coil. Good thing that I had the Bentley because info is very limited here.

Next time it will take me much less but that's a crazy design, having to remove all of this just to access the rear bolts.

At least my OBD code got cleared.
