    240 Bosch or Beru

    so i probably need a new ignition coil for the 240 GLT (b230f). been scouting around online to see what would be the best deals. i have come across a Beru coil for significantly less than a Bosch coil. i'm not a total cheapskate when it comes to maintenance, but if the quality is equal why pay...

    okay so first of all, i did try the search function but found nothing similar. that might be because i suck at using the search function, so bear with me. anyway my '89 240 GLT (B230F) had some trouble firing up at the first turn of the key lately. i thought it might have to do with it being...
