Hi there,

What codes come up with the engine light on?

Have you fitted genuine coils?

Hi again,

I hope you have scanned the car for engine codes, if you have P0351-P0356 in any combination, this will prove your coils are the culprit.

Please fit genuine coils.

Good to hear Dave.

If you need to go one range hotter, then is the engine consuming oil?

How many kms?

Is yours a manual transmission?

There was an ECM reflash for closing the egr while coasting. The early engines up to 2007 were wearing out because of this.
