      Has anyone ever successfully used ignition coils from an r32 3.2 VR on a 2.8 24v? I have an r32 motor that has fairly new coils in it and it would be great if they worked in the 2.8. Thanks

      Yeah I agree, I am pretty sure they are the exact same part numbers.

      So u are running BJS coils in a BDF motor?

      Everywhere i've looked shows a diff part number for the parts. but then again, the part number is their part number and not the VW part number....I don't wanna just install them and fry the ignition system u know. I wanna be absolutely sure.

      the different part # is probably because they are red

      Just the covers for the connectors are red.

      I've used these coils with the same driver on standalone with no issues. I know both have the same 200ohm signal to ground resistance.

      Run em.

      That's what I'm running on my BDF engine now without any issues. Bought them in the R32 classified. I'm sure you'll be fine running them

      Yeah the covers are separate and available on ECS in red, blue, and black.

      Other than that like said above, the coils are same.

      Aren't R32 COP’s shorter, the R32 I have are shorter than the original 2.8(BDF) COP's. I’ll take a picture if I can.

      I'm pulling one from each engine this weekend and comparing them before doing the work.

      NO....R32 coils will NOT work in a BDF. The R32's are 1/2 inch shorter than the BDF coils.

      I just replaced all of mine..GAP sent 2 R32 coils by accident. That's how I know!

      Dude....I just told you they are different.

      If you want I can post up a pic of both to show you the difference in a little bit when I get home from work.

      Didn't touch the ignition coils today. i was busy putting these on.


      And i'll be flushing the brake fluid tomorrow and setting the coilover ride height. Thursday installing new exhaust and going to get an alignment friday. when she's all done i'll spend the day finding excuses to drive around with all my new goodies. I won't be able to take the pics of the ignition coils till saturday.

      So, what your are saying is that you run R32 coils in your BDF...when in FACT...they are 1/2 shorter and are a completly different part #? I just installed all new coils...like i said earlier they had sent me 2 R32 coils by accident. The R32's misfired since they don't seat all the way down.

      If you don't think I know what I am talking about.....Call the Stealership....and ask them.

      Weird, because I'm running R32 coils on my BDF as well and they work fine. I purchased mine from the R32 Classified. Never had any misfire code whatsoever.

      What makes you think the kid at the dumbership knows what they are talking about any more than you do?

      I can simply go to my driveway and pull a coil from each car and post a pic... but you are the naysayer, so you get to do the work.
