The problem happens almost ALL the time at part throttle (75% max) from 2k - 5k rpm and the car stutters/shakes and starts running rough until I re-start the car. It's gotten to the point that it even happens on map 0 now But the strange part is, that if I just hammer down the gas pedal, most of the time it will run like a raped ape to redline with no misfires! But anything in-between 2k and 5k rpm accelerating moderately (which is most of my daily spirited driving) it misfires bad

Anyway, I called the BMW dealer I bought the car from (the car was originally bought, serviced, and traded back in from this dealer) and set up an appointment to have them look at it. I gave them the VIN and supposedly the recalls were done already and the HPFP was replaced sometime in 2010 and the injectors in Jan 2011... And of course the OEM warranty was up when I bought the car, but I'm still under the dealers 60 day used car warranty. So I'm hoping they find some bad injectors or coils and fix it for me!

This just sucks... so now I'm pulling out the JB4 and putting the car back to stock tonight, and leaving the SES light on with the 3 misfire codes still showing.

Before the new plugs, it was only cylinders 3 and 4 every time (and I reset the codes 3 or 4 times)
Then I replaced all the plugs and I switched the #3 and #4 coils to the #1 and #2 spots.... and now I still get a misfire code from #3 every time, and occasionally #1 and #2, show up also... So, I'm wondering if I have a couple coils going bad, and one injector in the #3 spot.
I was actually thinking that exact thing. Perhaps you have some carbon build up too though.
