A faulty or dirty TDC sensor causes similar issues to yours.

I cleaned mine however it made no difference. My misfire is present even at motorway speeds, albeit much less noticeable, there is a slight rythmical surge and pullback.

When you say you replaced the HT leads to the blocks on the engine, do you mean the wires to the coils ?

An airleak could cause a misfire too, which would be more noticeable around town as you are constantly altering the rpm.
