The Bosch 00012 is on backorder. The next best alternative
is the BERU silver coil with the bracket. We are set up directly with Bosch USA and have had these on order forever and they keep pushing the date back on us. We typically recommend the BERU silver coil over the Bosch because it is a better product today.
If you insist that your coil says "Bosch" we recommend you sign up for the back in stock notifications by clicking the yellow, "Notify Me When in Stock Button" above and entering your email address.
The Bosch 12 Volt, 3 Ohm Blue VW Ignition Coil includes a bracket. The Bosch coil is an epoxy filled coil and will not leak if mounted sideways or upside down. The coil is compatible with our Computronix and Pertronix Electronic Ignition Modules as well as many other points elimination kits. We typically use Bosch ignition components in our VWs almost exclusively and recommend only Bosch ignition parts for your VW. The 12 volt coil fits 1967 through 1977 Standard Beetles, 1971 through 1979 Super Beetles, 1967 through 1974 Karmann Ghias, 1967 through 1979 Type 2 Bus models, 1967 through 1973 Type 3s, 1973 through 1974 Things and 1980 through 1983 Vanagons. EMPI part number: 9409
The VW coil is the round cylinder, slightly smaller than a soda can. The coil is typically mounted to the left side of the VW fan shroud. It has a large wire running from its center post to the center post of the distributor cap. The coil is powered when you turn on your key and provides the spark that keeps your engine running.

If you are using standard points the original wire from the main wiring harness is BLACK, this goes to the POSITIVE terminal. The GREEN wire from the condenser goes to the NEGATIVE side of the coil.
If you are using an electronic ignition, the original wire from the main wiring harness is BLACK, this goes to the POSITIVE terminal. From the ignition module, the RED wire goes to the POSITIVE terminal, the BLACK wire goes to the NEGATIVE terminal.
