Re: Pencil coil sale

I purchased 4 x pencil coils from ebay which lasted approx 9 months, when they failed they went big style and the engine wouldn't idle, it just ran enough for me to get it to the garage. They got it on the diagnostics and 2 of the coils were faulty, they recommended renault pencil coils and replaced just the 2 faulty ones.
14 month later engine is running rough on idle with the service light from time to time, I think I have pencil coil issues again, but which ones Renault ones or ebay ones!
Has anyone tried diagnostics at home, if so what did you have to do this ?
