Welcome to the forums
Just out of interest, how do you know the coils need replacing.
Leads are really an easy job to do yourself and cost about £30 per pair.
Cost of coils, I don't know but still quite an easy job.
Probably a 1 hour job at a garage. Maybe your plugs need changing at the same time.

For the sake of getting the car to a garage, and paying them £40-£50 an hour to do it. I'd sooner do it myself.
The hardest part (as with most routine jobs on an F) is getting to the engine!

The coils are unlikely to need replacing on a 2001 car.

The plugs were changed at the service but I then had a misfire problem in low revs. Took the car back to see if one of the new plugs were faulty but have come back with leads and 2 coils to be replaced.

I'm not able to do it myself as I am useless:wavecry:

Ah the wonders of a garage with a Testbook diagnostic computer :rolleyes:

If the're any good, they'll try just the leads first, potentially saving you a good few squid.
