i started my 325 last night and right away it started shaking really bad, check engine light came on and i can smell gas at the exhaust, man i hate this crap, still under warranty though.

has this happened to anyone else?

Raw fuel smell and shaking engine? Sounds like no spark.
Coil packs maybe some other faulty ignition system parts.

Keep us posted.

You're being haunted by the Audi curse of last year when the A4 coil packs were failing. :)

At least they're getting it fixed for you, so that's a plus.

Valmont, you have a 2003 325ci? Aren't the wheels in your picture of an earlier model 3 series?
