not sure on your car does it have coils on top of plugs? I had a misfire on my 3 series 00 it was a bad coil replaced it and works fine now. 2cents worth used

Have you checked the HT leads and the distributer cap to make sure each cylinder is actually getting a spark? Is there any blue smoke from the exhaust cos that can be a sign that incorrect combustion is occuring within the block

Fit a new set of leads and hopefully the problem will be fixed..........if not as others have mentioned move on to the coil and dizzy.Someone with a smart-scope would quickly identify where the probelm is for you,and would only take half an hour to do so.

Good Luck.
