Question Which Coils for V6 2.8t on 2008 9-3 aero?

Looking to replace coils on my 2008 9-3 V6 2.8t. I see Bosch coils and SAAB coils offered for that year with major price difference.

I read that for the 2008 9-3 V6 2.8t GM didn't fund a trionic upgrade and made them use a Bosch Motronic ECU which then required individual coils instead of a cartridge. Also that they shipped with a Delco coil that was problematic.

Searching forums I see people referring to the Delco as OEM and Bosch as the better quality replacement. As the ECU is Bosch matching manufacturer seems reasonable.

However, as noted above, I know see a third option, the SAAB at near double the Bosch price. Does anyone know about these apparently new SAAB Coils versus what used to be referred to as the better replacement coils by Bosch?

Must be that time of the season, I am in the mist of a coil change on my 2.8 07. My 07 cam with Bosch coils. Rockauto has the best price on them. Bosch 00147/0221604112
