    I have read that the coil pack crap the bed as soon as you chip the car. That's another $1100 per side plus might as well do the plugs at $260 for the parts plus the labor to install= (1100x2)+260+600(labor)+1800 (chip)=$4860 for 80hp and 125ft/lbs. Pretty expensive. Its fast enough stock. I have a 800hp toyota supra as well that if I get the need for speed, I drive that.

    They are pretty light for 3 piece 20's. The rear's are 10.5's and weigh in around 30lbs. The 9" wide fronts weight in around the 26lbs.

    Well, that's a good point.

    How do the guys with tunes avoid the coil pack issues?

    They don't. They just replace them when they crap out.

    No upgraded coil packs available?

    So it's a never ending replacement game? How long do they last or is it random?

    I think the replacement coil packs have a newer part number. Mercedes knew these were a major issue. Some crapped out at 20000miles. Some guys replaced them and within 500miles they crapped out again. There are no replacement aftermarket packs. You can't just replace one cylinder either. You replace one whole side at a time.

    Then tuning these motors seems to be a risk.

    Maybe the newer part is superior and rectifies the issues.
