Hello, I'm Brandon - BMW tech.

The bad miss is most likely due to ignition coil misfire.

I would recommend first plug in an OBD2 scanner to see if is indeed cylinder misfire.

If yes, replace all the ignition coils and a set of spark plugs. I recommend using only BMW coil not aftermarket coil.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Please rate me positive for the prompt service, thank you!
