Yeah those distributors can get yah. I've been thinking of changing mine sine my car is like 20 years old. My car sturtered too before I switched out my 7.5amp fuel delivery fuse for a 25amp fuse. Funny does the 318i come with a rev limiter? Yesterday I was leaving the public library and floored it as hard as I could to meet traffic speed. 1st gear went all the way to 5500 more or less and shutdown then came second 4-5 shutdown again.
