Unfortunately, the answer to your question depends on what kind of
ignition system you have. If you have a '75-'78 530i with points you
can get ***lots*** of improvement by replacing the system with an
There are two ways to do this. First, you could scout the wrecking
yards (excuse me, automotive recyclers) for a 79-81 528i and get the
distributor, harness, ignition "computer" and *coil* and install them
on your 530i.
Second, you could get one of the aftermarket conversions.
If you have a 528i with an all-electronic system, it's pretty hard to
beat. In fact, some years ago I tried a Jacobs from Ray Korman and it
wasn't as good as the stock system.
