I have a similar car with similar problem. My engine light is on and my mechanic says it has a faulty Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF). If you unplug the sensor cable you will notice a big difference in accelaration.

The 3 series suffer badly from camshaft sensors and on your vehicle crankshaft too. Replace all three sensors and your problems are gone. You will notice that the old sensors have a step in them while the new modified ones dont, good luck
