I have a '99 328i with 83,000k miles that is periodically misfiring. The check engine light comes on and I get two codes: P0303 (Cylinder 3 misfire), and P1250 (Air/Fuel Mixture, related to Air Mass Meter). It always happens on the same cylinder. Whenever the car starts to misfire, it will stop after I shut off and restart the car. I check the connector on the Air Mass Meter and it appears to be fine. Can anyone provide with some ideas on what to check? It doesn't make sense to me that it would be the spark plug or wire since the car will sometimes run for several days without a problem. Performance does not seem to be affected either.

I would check the coil on the cylinder, my car was doing the same thing on cylinder 5
swap the suspect coil with a non-suspect coil. clear the error codes, run the car, shut it off. check the error codes again. if the error followed the suspect coil, voila. if not, it's another problem.
check the spark plug shaft for oil residue while you have the coil out.
