BMW engine is aluminum engine. Watch out , don’t let the engine over heated too much.
According to your explanation, sounds like your engine is over heated, I like to know , how hot the engine was when your BMW stalled and you have to wait around 45 minutes, after you started your car again and how long can you drive and get it hot again.
Any aluminum engine, we must watch out very carefully, sometimes just one time over heat, the engine will be damaged very badly, as soon as you have over heat problems, you have to check the following items.
Hose, water pump, fan belt connect to water pump, thermostat, coolant level, oil level, electric cooling fan should work normal, Check your radiator circulation, timing etc.
Check the coolant in the radiator see if there is oil,
Check the oil cap and oil stake see if there is white steam, if you see something like what I mentioned, that possibly your engine has blew up the head gasket or the engine cracked already, hope not, but you have to watch out and check it right away.
Sometimes during the summer time, if you feel your car is hot or you smell burning coolant and do not keep driving, maybe only driving several blocks or several miles, you are going to completely damage your engine.
From my Union 76 Service Station long time experience, I had so many cases about the aluminum engine damaged by over heat even my own BMW 530i.
Please check your car as soon as possible. Good luck.

You are smelling burning antifreeze. likely a head gasket but only testing will determine that for sure...Do not drive it. get it to a shop or more damage is likely.

I am a BMW technician and i see this problem daily. There is a filter on the top of your rockercover. it is called an oil separater or a breather filter. you can only get the filter at a BMW garage so if you go to stores and ask them for this filter they will know what you are talking about if you tell them you are after having your turbo replaced. Fit this filter and you will notice the smoke will get better if it does not go away completely you might wait another 3-4 weeks and replace it again. hope this helps.
