Yes, I'd be interested too. We got bit early and haven't taken a chance since so if anyone has had success with non-Honda branded coil packs it should be shared on this site.

Beck Arnley. Failed after 100 miles due to an arc through the body, about mid-point of the length. But, I don't know if that's due to the coil pack or just a hot cylinder I had.

Dealer told me Honda changed the design of "newer" coil plugs and that they're better. I don't know if that's true.

I bought the eBay special- AC auto parts. Do not buy these! After putting them in I had to take them out after a few hundred miles for a valve job and 3 out of the 4 broke apart taking them out. I just bought Honda genuine to save the hassle

Crap! Just like searching for an attorney, don't look for a bargain, buy the best you can get.

I recently changed my packs with new OEM Honda ones. They've changed the boot from orange to black and look slightly different. I can pull one back out and do side by side comparisons if there's interest.

I looked up the available coil packs in our online parts supplier order catalog. It lists HITACHI as the OEM manufacturer for Honda. I THINK they are part number 3520-PWC-00. These are what I plan to go with when I swap mine... Still no deals even for me, around $52 per...
