Our M42 and M44 Performance Ignition Wire Set consists of either a 7mm or 8mm conductive wire core (depending on the color you select) that are made using the same OEM Beru connectors and BMW looms -- but the similarities really end there. Each set of Bimmerworld performance ignition wires is manufactured to exacting standards using the best silicone cable available. With a low-resistance 18-strand copper core, our wires deliver more energy to the spark plug while providing superior RFI suppression.
For the 7mm wires, please select the Black color. These are our standard performance wires. All other colors include an upgraded 8mm wire conductor for max spark performance.
All M42/M44 kits include dielectric grease for proper electrical contact, coil wire, impulse cable if required, and Genuine BMW wire loom. This ignition wire set is the best choice for any BMW - higher performance than stock wires at a lower price!
This set of wires is made specifically for the M42 and M44 4 cylinder engines which were BMWs first 16 valve engines initially launched with a 1.8 liter displacement for 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994 and 1995, later upgraded to 1.9 liter in the 1996, 1997, 1998 and 1999 model years. Please note these wires will NOT work on cars previous to 1989.
When replacing your ignition wire set, remember to also check your cap and rotor for excessive wear and replace if needed.
A packet of dielectric grease included.
Available in black, blue, red, or yellow. The black wire sets are 7mm and are more comparable to factory premium replacement wire sets. Black sets are $5.00 less per set for this reason.
