Is yours an auto or manual?
I had an auto 325Ci myself before and had the same problem when at a stop and also idling. It could be the mass air flow sensor, idle control valve, crank case valve, DISA, or possibly something else. There should be a guide on here somewhere or on E46Fanatics if you Google it because this is actually a very common problem.

Luckily it's not a hard fix and even though I had it repaired at a shop, it didn't cost much since they guy said he's fixed a lot of E46s with this problem.
