Well i picked up a 1985 535i and put some money back into it new distributor cap and new plugs, new fuel filter and new tires, timing checked, tranny flushed, same with anitfreeze... etc. I still have a problem tho. My car hesitates when i really step on it when i have the car on. It does it more when the car has just started but im still not sure where to go with it. The mass air sensor doesnt need to warm up so i dont think its that. Theres alot of pressure on the fuel line, If anyone has any clues please tell me its my first bmw so im all ears for any advise thanks

Check the air bypass valve in the fuel injection system, if you haven't
replaced it already. Many people often miss it.

good luck

I had the exact same problem with the 3.5 in my 6. I replaced the idle-air stabilizer valve and it took care of the problem. Just a thought.

Air filter, check your o2 sensors.
