Smile Help!!!!

Hi, Guys And Gals!i'm New To The Bmw World, My Cousin Gave Me His Old 1985 Bmw 318i. So It Has Become My New Ride. I Simply Love The Car But I Have Been Running Into A Problem I Cant Figure Out. When I Got The Car It Had An Idle Problem, Bouncing Up And Down, So I Fixed It With A New Throttle Switch, I Also Cleaned The Idle Valve And Adjusted It, Although The Bouncing Is Gone The Car Still Idles High, Around 1800 Rpms. The Problem The Is Bugging Me Is That When Cruising Bout 60-65 I Experience A Hesitation, It Feels Like A Miss In The Engine, So I Change The Cap, Rotor And Wires, And It Still Has The Same Problem. Anyone Run Into This Problem? Any Help Would Be Greatly Appreciated. Thanks!!!:

Could be the Mass Air sensor/ MAF, or it maybe the camshaft sensor.

Go for the MAF 1st, unplug it and see if theres any change if not its shot.

I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
