Hi, I have an e28 520i which had similar problems after sitting idle.
Having checked everything I could think of I changed the distributor
cap and rotor arm (check if the rotar arm has a rev limiter or not -
if it has there is a spring incorporated in the top of the rotor arm)
and 'bingo' - she has started first time ever since and runs much more
You don't say where you are based - I am in UK and got my parts from
'eurocarparts'- cost was less than GBP £17 plus VAT.
You can check them out on www.eurocarparts.com and they ship just
about anywhere, although carriage costs vary. They give an email
address on the site if you can't find or identify the part on their
listings eg. they traced a new rubber seal for the boot (trunk)for me
as mine had perished.
It would certainly explain why you've no spark.
All I have to do now is sort out my continuing power problems!!!
Best of luck - Graham
