Mein Auto: 1990 325i
1990 325i- miss + hesitation

bought the car off my brother this summer in sitting condition. my father and i spent the whole summer rebuilding the entire engine and restoring it to former glory. it runs beautifally except for a miss when it is cold and a hesitation. i know for a fact that nothing was replaced since my brother owned the car(except a rebuilt transmission) i first bought a cold start censor which didnt help and then bought a O2 censor which helped a lot but didnt completly fix the problem. im planing on buying a new distributer cap but before i do what would you say should be the next step to fix the problem?

cap, rotor, wires, spark plugs. easy way to spend 120 bucks but if the problem still happens you have only a few more ignition parts then its on to fuel and air.
