Hello and welcome to the forum.

If you do a search for 'Pencil Coils ',you should find the info you need.It is a very common problem on the 16 valve Renault engines,so your not alone!

Good luck,and any problems give us a shout.

Edit;It's not a good idea to run the engine for too long when it's misfiring as the unburnt fuel will go into the Catalytic Converter(Cat) in the exhaust system and very quickly damage it....

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
