Yeah- so far 215/14 is about as cheap as they come on the internet. Start keeping an eye on ebay as well (there arent any specifically for your model year on there at the moment- i checked earlier).

Find a junkyard with a wrecked Catera and steal the coil off of that.

Maybe someone on the boards here has a coilpack they'll sell you.



As of now, thats all I could find/think of. Sorry.

Have you tried NAPA??? I have found many parts there that I thought I would be forced to go back to the dealer to purchase. Also, if you have AAA, they give you a discount.

The coil pack is only available through the dealership unless you find it online elsewhere believe me I have checked. Just had one replaced for $350 through my local dealer along with plug wire for the right cylinder bank $200.

200 dollars for ignition wires?? bunch of damn crooks. I built my own set for less than 75 bux. :mad:
