    I dont know if the BMW uses the same thing , but on my old golf gti i had exedctly the same problem and it turned out to be filth around the throttle butterfly.

    What happens is the engine thinks the butterfly is closed when its not , adjusts the mixture and the engine just dies.

    clean up the edge and the barrel it fits in and it should seal properly.

    A faulty maf sensor showed up when i had my code read!!
