Missing and Vibration problem

hello I am driving X5-2008, 3.0 Liter. there has been missing problem in my car some times during accelration, particularly sudden accelration from low speeds like 20-30 to 50-60 kph. but problem was not consistent. This missing problem was also acoompanied with ibration.

it only appeared some times. most of the times not. so i went to mechanic who did a diagnostic computer check and tell me that coil no 03 is problematic so he changed the coil. However things get worsened after getting the coil replaced and now it has started continually vibrating and missing on lower speeds. The phenomenon is more prominent at low speeds and now this vibration can be felt even at signal-stop position

There was one more warning massage during computer check and that was "vtg-transfer case oil wear" what is this and can it be linked to my current problem. Can this be Torbean/Convictor issue?

please advise how should i proceed now?
thanks and regards

Welcome to Bimmerfest, Affan!

I moved your question to the correct X5 forum, where you should get some help.

the vtg oil warning is almost certainly NOT related to the missing/vibration

Engine type? Diesel? Gas?]

How many miles?

Checl engine light on?

What is the list of all CODES that are being read with a computer. We cannot trust that the last shop fixed the problem- likely they took a guess and they were wrong.
Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.
