please help with problem

hi guys, i have checked that bogging/hesitation post. Ive replaced the o2 sensor, fuel filter, and plugs to try to remedy the problem but no dice. The thing is, my car bucks when im basically, 1/8th throttle. Ill basically let off, with just a little force on the gas, and itll buck, aslo when i take my foot off completely, for a second it does it aswell. When i peg the gas, itll go, FEEL like it wants to go, then go again. Its really annoying. I really notice it when crusing through a parking lot in 1st gear at 10 mph. It bucks pretty hard. Jumps around a bit. Someone please help me out here. Also my mpg gauge doesnt really come out past o untill im in 3rd or am really easy on the gas. please help me anyone. Thanks alot, oh and the car is a 94 325i

Could be a Tear in the rubber intake boot.
that caused me some part throttle "bucking"

you can also mist some water on your wires & coils (while running at night)
to check for any arcing -sparks.

My first geuss would be low fuel pressure, but your not alone...
Beleive it or not I read all 50+ Pages and helped many try to trouble shoot (fuel pressure was a fix for about 5 of em).
Sort/read what they did and then ask about which one suits your problem the most.

Current Mods....X-Brace, Stromung Cat Back Exhaust, 17/225/45 M3 Replicas, HotBits Adjustable Coil Overs, 40% LSD 3:91 Diff, E30 Gearbox, Boosted.
