Exclamation 02' E46 M3 Rough/Jerky takeoff (Video)

Hey guys,

I've been having a strange issue with my baby recently. Whenever I take off under hard acceleration, the car jerks and the engine acts like it's starving for fuel or the computer is cutting off power whether the DSC is engaged or not It had some recent work, including:

-Air filter
-Fuel Filter
-Spark Plugs
-Oil + Oil filter
-MAF sensor

(The problem was happening before this maintenance as well)

My friend who is an ex BMW technician said 99% of the time problems like these are related to the MAF sensor, and that this was very strange. It's throwing no EML or SES codes either, and I know it's not my driving. I added a youtube link to a video as well trying to capture the symptoms, it's been a couple months now and I ran out of ideas to try

Any help or suggestions would be more than appreciated!
