Unhappy Acceleration misfire

Need help determining cause of misfire when accelerating at about 2000 rpm. The car is 98 323i manual transmission. Replaced plugs and still misfiring. Plugs removed were clean. Typically notice misfire/ lugging in 1st and 2nd gear. Raging in 3rd and 4th gear (high rpms) and car runs great. Anyone have a similar problem and fix it? I've read about everything from idle control valve to fuel pump to coils but no sure cure.

Went to independent today. Found an O2 sensor code (but check engine light not on). Sensor seemed to be functioning fine during idle. Plan is to see if I can get the code to reset again after driving car for the weekend and confirm the O2 fault. He also suggested it might be the air mass meter starting to go bad. The best thing... no charge unless he actually fixes something.

Anyone have an opinion?
