Exclamation first "problem" with my car

so last week my car was running beautiful, nothing wrong with it, seemed like everything was alright. i left for florida last friday and left my e46 in the driveway for a week and when i returned home yesterday it was not running right. a lot of vibration, an irregular idle, and i got a check engine light shortly thereafter, so i took it to my buddies dad's shop to get it checked out. when we scanned it for codes, only one came up, thank god. [P1347 Misfire Cylinder 3 With Fuel Cut-off] well today it is sitting in the shop, i think i am having an anxiety attack, hope the repair isn't going to cost me big $$$. well i guess you've got to pay to play. i did some searching nothing too solid came up, any body know anything useful about this?

if you havent replaced your spark plugs recently check them, however, i'd bet money that one of your ignition coils (aka coil pack) has gone bad. Easy and not too expensive fix.
