Leaking ignition coil


I found the other day at the track that the ignition coil on my 1985 930 was leaking... I guess that it will eventually overheat and fail since the oil is supposed to keep everything kind of cool in there.

In search of a replacement, I fond the new one that Bosch makes in Brazil sold by our host for a modest price but I have read a lot of bad reviews for these.

I also found used original ones that seem a bit expensive and I am not sure how long it will last.

I have a MSD high vibration blaster coil from a complete MSD system that I had for my 911sc and I have read that the MSD coil could be used as direct replacement. What worries me is will using the MSD coil shorten the life of my original CDI?

Should I get the used original one? Anybody has one?

Thanks for the help
