    You can get your DME codes from this table
    EndTuning - BMW Codes

    You might want to clear them and see what comes back, but the misfire is likely to be from the coilpack on cyl 1.

    Check the condition of the crank pulley / vibration damper, make sure the teeth are clean, and there is no dents or bends in it.

    the pulley is not bent but the teeth could be cleaner,i guess the sensor and crank act in the same way as abs sensor picking up the revolutions of the sprocket

    Yep, and as the code and misfire comes when it is revved up, either it is giving intermittent signals, or the signals might be degraded somehow.
    The toothed wheel should be on a rubber mount as it is also the vibration damper.
    It's a real heavy duty type of rubber, and they don't usually have problems, but if it wasn't spinning perfectly central, it could give patches where the signal from the teeth might be weak.
