323ci 2000 ignition coils gone bad

It appears that two of the six ignition coils (all BREMI OEM parts) have gone bad. Can I replace the two bad ones with BOSCH part or should I stay with BREMI OEM part? Does it really matter? Thanks...

I dunno as a fact, but I see no reason why the correct Bosch coils wouldn't work fine.

You can replace them with which ever one you wish.

I am being old that ll 6 of my coils have gone bad and should all be replaced. Is this reasonable or would it more normal to need to replace only some? At $100.00+ US each plus labor it matters. Thanks for replying.

Wow........... 1 in million they all go at the same time......someones trying to rip you off, this is how you do it: easier to buy a plug, then take of the plug cap plug in the new plug hold it, the cap that is, with insulated pliers or similar with the bottom of the plug 2mm away from the head or touching it turn the car over ( this does take 2 people) and see if there is a spark, if there is that coil is Ok, do them 1 by 1 and you will see which ones are bad.
