Change the rotor arm in the distributor. They have a centrifugal balance and sometimes the springs lose tension simple fix

I guess its not so much a back fire but bad misfire. will not go up a hill keeps lurching ahead under the misfire...

Often it takes a load to bring out the misfire like hard acceleration or climbing a hill, did you check the spark plug boots on the coils for signs of burning or other damage of any kind.

I have a BMW 3 series 330 xi and it showes the code p0300 I wasnt successful finding what's this code for. I need help.. do you knoe what's this code means ?? I also find out that my beamer has a misfire...

P0300 indicated a multiple cylinder misfire. Typical causes are vacuum leaks, bad plugs, wires and/or coils. Could also be a dirty MAF. From what you describe it could also be the seal between the air cleaner housing and the MAF. Make sure the o-ring is not out of place and dry. I put some silicone lube or vasaline on it to help seal things up. That fact that it acts this way when cold points in the direction. That's what I would check first. Let me know how it works out.

Bmw misfiring

I would check your tps(Throttle positioning sensor) to see if its bad. That's what it sounds like.

1996 328i bmw sometimes loses power and won't pass smog test

Ok you will have to have it scanned. It probably has cylinder misfire codes and random cylnder misfires. You could need spark plugs and or coils. The scan will tell you exactly which cylinder is missing. That will cure your problem and remember to change your oil and filter right before you go in for the smog test. Also if the car hasn't been serviced in a while it would be a good idea to replace the air filter and fuel filter.
