I had this issue also, my problem was a bad ignition coil. Changed that out and was perfect.

Tell the dealer your car shakes and what you think it could be. Nothing will happen to you with a muffler delete.

The dealer can blame you if they want but you can protest with BMW NA and/or go to another dealer. A burnt coil at 3k miles may be blamed on launch assist or a money shift the rev limiter couldn't handle so beware. I know this because I had to replace 2 coils on my wife's 325ci and they claimed it was from abusive driving habits, which I asked them to prove. In the end, with so few miles, it must be defective.

on another note, why tear off a part of the stock system so early? Your drivetrain has had no time to break in. I would be concerned with longevity.

No.

If you're so concerned, you should've never touched a stock part on your car.

You can fix this yourself in like 5 minutes: go to an autozone and get them to scan your car for free to see which error code if is going off because there should be one. Mine said iginition coil 3 so i just bought one and replaced. And idk about the warranty.

if your car dash shows no lights on does that mean obd2 won't pick up any errors? is it possible to have errors in the computer but not to give a dash light?

Yeap same thing happened to me last year. I have a muffler delete as well, but I didn't have it at the time of the bad ignition coil. Recently I had it happen to me again so I pulled over and shut the car off. Could also be a misfire, that's what the second time was for me I'm gathering but after 10 mins I turned the car back on and it was fine. So whenever you get your car back I'd let it warm up for a couple mins to get some lubricant in the pistons, otherwise it's kinda bad to just start and go.

i took my car for service last week and told them about it and showed a couple of vids i had of it and they couldnt find anything.
but now when i turn the AC and defrosters on and put it into R or D then it starts to shake.. does this have anything to do with it?
