We have a couple options for current harness owners that would like to upgrade.
If you are wanting to upgrade the connectors we can do that on your existing harness if you send it in and that cost is only $50 plus shipping.
Or if you want to purchase a new v2 harness then we are offering a discounted price of $200.


So lets play that back shall we...... return your harness for them to replace their dodgy 3d printed connectors and pay $50 USD plus postage both ways for the privileged
or
Pay $200 USD plus postage for a new harness

BL cashes in early by putting out low quality parts and then wants customers to pay to replace them when they fail... nice

Im gonna start #BoycottBimmerLife

I decided to make my own wiring harness for the Audi coils instead of paying for the bimmer life coil kit and so far all 6 coils are sparking and seem to work as they should. The problem I am currently having is that the coil on cylinder 6 keeps wanting to arc to itself instead of sending the spark to the end of the plug. I think this is in part due to me cheaping out and buying "audi replacement coils" off of amazon instead of getting the real deal. But the new audi connectors seem to be hooked up correctly to the bmw coil wiring as all 6 are producing spark. If needed for other users I can make a wiring diagram in case others are wanting to do the same. In the meantime I am going to continue troubleshooting the misfire/spark issues I am having and will update once all is well.

Be sure to read the thread at Spool to see how they do the mods to make the coils actually seat in the head. Un-modded they will not go down all the way!

Yes the harness has been remade, much better quality and it lasts longer, more durable!

I remember wanting to DIY myself and found a diagram on another forum
Google n54: r8 coils vs aftermarket n54 ignition coils? and the original poster was on page 4 his name was Xm-n54

If you make a harness of decent quality you can print money. Dont use the r8 coils though
We all know they dont fit lol

Hope this helps
