125i engine problem, any suggestions?

Hey guys, having a bit of an issue with my 2010 125i so thought i'd ask if anyone had any idea of what the issue could be before the car is towed to the garage.

The car is vibrating massively while on and it sounds as if it is running on about half its cylinders (check engine light is on). I've posted a video below of how the car is sounding. The exhaust fumes smell absolutely horrible. On board computer just says to get the car checked but nothing more.

Anyone experienced anything like this or have any suggestions for what it might be? Car was running perfectly when I parked it up on Thursday night.
