Hello, Thank you for the VIN. On your N46 engine there is a common failure with bad ignition coils. This failure leads to a skip being felt with no check engine light. This is also common on the BMW 6 cylinder engines. The fix is to replace all the ignition coils with updated parts. I like to replace plugs at the same time since they have not been firing correctly due to the failing ignition coils. I hope this is helpful. I am providing a link to a parts picture of the coils for you.Please remember to select a positive rating for my help today as this is the only way I receive credit for helping today. Thank you!Best Regards,Roger
