323ci 2000 wagon service engine soon lights on

Used the fault code reader from AutoZone, two fault codes came up: P0302 and P0306; nothing else. While idling, engine shakes more than usual (some people call it rough idling); also after shutting off and restart the engine, huge smoke came out of the exhaust. Definitely something is not right. Any ideas???

zibby is an unknown quantity at this point
Your car is misfireing on cylinder 2 and 6.
Start with new spark plugs if this not cure the problem most likely ignition coils on these cylinders went bad.
Smoke from pipe on start and turning off could indicated faulty oil separator.
