First thing I'd check on a #3 misfire is the coilpack. See it all the time and at least twice on my 98 BDs and once on my 99 BG/K. Check the coilpack-side connector both the coilpack connector and the wire-side connector for arcing/carbon blacking. If you got it you've got one of three things going on:

1) bad plug
2) bad plug wire
3) bad coil pack
4) fuel starvation on # 3 cylinder fuel rail - a search should yield some help here.

Plugs here: http://www.ngksparkplugs.com/apps/ca...uv/results.asp

Plug wires here...https://www.1stsubaruparts.com/partscat.html @ $10.79 each

Coilpack check here...http://endwrench.com/images/pdfs/IgnitionCoil.pdf

Coilpack replacement here...https://www.1stsubaruparts.com/partscat.html

Good luck
