Cheapest place for fuel injectors??

Looking to pick up a set of new fuel injectors. Index 11 and up are what I'm looking for. Can anyone point me in the right direction for the best deals. I know tho euro. I've also read post where people picked them up for like $110. I can't find any cheaper then like $260 from all suppliers.

A few months back people were getting them from advance auto and using a coupon for like $130 a piece...

Are you sure you need to replace the fuel injectors? I was told this by BMW but it turns out I needed to replace spark plugs.

They were like $150/ea or so from advance auto(and then people were adding on 15-20% discount codes). But then I think too many people found out and were buying them, because the ones that were that price(intermotor brand) are now $359 a piece, more than the VDO that are listed at $262 per. They are $269 at Oreilly. Best bet now is either FCP Euro for the lifetime warranty aspect or find someone selling some, that's the route I was lucky to take and got a great deal at 1K for all 6.

I just did spark plugs like 5k miles ago. I don't think I necessarily need them yet. It's just whenever I do a cold warm start when I go on lunch at work or when I get off work I got a slightly jumpy idle for about 10 seconds not enough to set misfire codes or mess up air to fuel ratios. Cold starts are perfect. And warm starts like coming out of Walmart it anything if it's only been a an hour or two are perfect also. But I mean I'm tuning the car and stuff and figured it's probably time for new injectors so trying to see who he's them cheapest right now

I saw that to on advanced. Fcp euro does seem cheapest at the moment plus the lifetime warranty. I just don't have like $1300 to shove out on them

You can also do one bank at a time if cost is an issue.

I know but I like to do things right and get it all at once. My luck I'll do one bank and something from the other bank will fail. Like when I did spark plugs. I put plugs in and reused coils. Been like a month and a half and I've already replaced a couple coils. I should have just bought coils at the same time as plugs

Disregard this thread. Decided to go take a look at my Injectors just to see what index I have. Turns out I already have index 12 models. So I'm just going to figure out which one is maybe going bad and replace the one

Did you end up getting a misfire code? I'm getting a misfire code on cylinder 3 and I'm pretty certain that my plugs are fine. I've done the swap coils and plugs around for testing and the code remains on cylinder 3. Tonight I'll test to make sure I have spark because my injector still works but maybe it's clogged.

No they don't miss enough to throw codes. It only does it on a warm cold start during the day. For a few seconds. Then stops. I've ran fuel injector cleaner and nothing happen. I just did a 20% e85 mix since I'm going to the track tomorrow. Maybe the e85 will clean it out
