Ignition coils/Tune up

Hey everyone, sorry if I'm not in correct area but only place I was able to find to post my question.

i have a 2001CL-S and just did a tune up on the car but haven't changed out the coils yet. Want to know some opinions from experiences that there might be from NGK, Duralast, Denso, and some other beansb I saw on Amazon.

Vehicle has about 170k miles and it's a daily driver with no aftermarket parts. Only plans for the car in long run is an exhaust and to lower it.

First piece of advice, if the coils are working, leave them alone.
Second piece of advice, if a coil fails, replace it with a Hitachi or Denso unit.

Thanks, I don't think I've ever heard of Hitachi so I'll stick with Denso. How long do the stock ones typically last? I've heard that was one of the best OEM parts Acura put in.

Hitachi coils ARE the OEM coils which came on your car.
