Car: 89 525i, full tank of gas (premium), 118k miles

I noticed over the last few days that I have a hesitation when I'm not accelerating or decelerating - just sort of holding the same speed. When I gas it, it still goes but, when maintaining speed I get a slight to severe bucking. I am guessing it is a fuel pump but, I really haven't started to look around. It also doesn't seem to be idling as well. I guess it could also be a plug wire going bad?

Any Ideas?
