I was told by the dealership that my car was running poorly because the vehicle has 6 bad ignition coils and 6 bad spark plugs. The car only has 37,462 original miles. It's about a $1,700.00 job.

I was told other BMW 5 series' owners have been complaining about the same thing and he says its coolant leaking into the combustion chamber, which is under warranty. Any advice?
