The ecentric shaft sensor seems to be a likely culprit that can cause all of those symptoms/issues. A diy that deosn't look fun but is doable. I would get a BMW code read before anything else if...

Did you notice any of the plugs looking bad, wet, or fouled vs. the others? Glad you solved your problem. No oil in your plug areas (if so, leaking valve cover gasket) I take it?

It's probably a bad alignment job like I got and am still dealing with. They (Firestone) made it better but not like it was before. You need to find someone who can do BMWs and cares.
