3488Re: [bmw e28] tune up
- Mar 30, 2005i 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
