My E36 328i feels a bit delayed and a bit under powered up to 4000 reeves.

It's done 106000 on the clock so it's in good shape, it's had a resent full service including new spark plugs and a crank shaft sencer replacement.

One thing I have notested is when turning the engine over on start up it miss fires a bit?

It could be the Vanos unit. My E46 328i was very flat in the mid-range and had a bad idle. A Vanos rebuild sorted these issues. Talk to Mr Vanos in Darlington.
