What you have is the hydraulic lifts that is sticking. This is a common problem with the 3 series. Basically once you are over the warm up period, you can shut it off and drive off without any shaking, this only happens when you let the car sit for 8 hours or overnight. I talked to the dealer and they said it cost roughly about 1000 dollars b/c they have to open up the head of the engine to replace the sticky valves.
