    Default Bosch or Bremi Distributor Cap & Rotor

    Any opinions/preferences on which brand to use on my 1989 535i/M30?

    TIA

    I'd suspect both are the same. On many BMWs you may find the Bosch or Bremi parts, Same goes for ignition coils, some had bosch some had bremi. Double check w/ BMA and they can tell ya if theres any difference. I'd guss you can use either, maybe slight cost difference.

    Bremis are cheaper. both are good but the plug leads must match, no bremi coils and bosch plug leads or vice versa.

    Good piece of info. Looks like that means Bosch.
