V4T? The N20 is an inline four, not a V-4. Also, some of the solutions are pricey.

If I read correctly, you had multiple coils go bad. If that's the case, I'd recommend replacing all coils. My experience with bad coils is that the N54 does not always trigger a misfire code on the...

2nd video, I noticed the mpg gauge is not moving. I don't know, but maybe that's an indication that the fuel pump might be bad.

In my area, concrete roads prevail. But there are some roads with asphalt, and the noise difference between them is remarkable. I blame the low profile tires.

If I'm not mistaken, BMW began decontenting the 3 series around 2009, including the sound insulation. I've driven some '09+ loaners and felt they were noisier then my '07.

On a cold start, the exhaust flap may rattle like that. I'd try your test after warming the car up. N55s, as far as I know, are not known to have a wastegate rattle issue.

Your problem sounds to me like a problem I had with ignition coils. It was a misfire and most evident under heavy load in 3rd or 4th gear around 3k rpm. No codes until later, when the ignition coil...

If you've recently bought the car, you may want to check to see if the car has a SprintBooster attached to the gas pedal. Those can make the throttle super sensitive.

I think your answer is right there. If that's the only plug soaked with gas, I'd suspect the injector is mis-spraying and in need of replacement.
