    Long story short, cylinder 2 misfires and injector circuit CEL: plugs, coils, injectors are fine. So, hooray for me, I need a new control module.

    Could be many things, some which are above my pay grade. When you replaced the coils, did you also replace the plugs? If so, which plugs did you use? I'm new to the 9-3 (just got my '08 Aero SC days...
