e46 318 coupe judder

Hi all. just wondering if anyone here can help me with this.

Im getting some engine judder sometimes when chnaging down to 2nd and 3rd gear. Say for instance im comming to a junction or turning and im slowing down, i change down to 2nd or 3rd and then when trying to accelerate away the car will judder then I either have to chnage down again or wait a bit and the car will pick up. Could this be a missfire i the engine or am I just going to slow for that gear.

I know it sounds like a strange one but ive only had the car a month and just getting used to it. Ive always had small cars before like peugeot 106 and mg zr. The car seems to igle ok but I have noticed that when the engine starts its not totally smooth like I was expecting. I was thinking of changing the spark plugs but the car has just had a service and only done 25k miles. Could the wrong plugs have been used?

Any help or direction is most appreciated.
