      i run bosch platinums. I changed my plugs,
      wires, cap, and rotor. she runs like a champ.
      i did not have a big performance gain from the
      above, but i was doing pre-cautionary ca smog
      check stuff. i was test only and did not want
      to fail. she passed with flying colors - 1985 535i
      with 168k miles.

      in your case i would suspect maybe original wires?
      i have never cleaned my injectors and use cheap gas,
      but they say ventil sauber is the best at cleaning
      the injectors.
