Misfire conditions are a relatively common problem with this vehicle. Can you tell me if theres an engine light still on, or if you know of the trouble codes presently active?

Ok, and i see that you have already replaced two coil packs working on this problem.
Good inormation. Something interesting to know about this engine series, is its very common for them to set a trouble code for a cylinder misfire, on the wrong cylinder. Faulty coil may be on cyl 4, code for 6... etc.
Its important to remove and visually inspect all the coils for any signs of carbon tracking, discoloration, cracks, anything that indicates arcing was present. Did you or can you do this first before we move on?
