Question about 2007 BMW 3 Series 328i
Its a e46 2003 318ti compact. have changed the alternator but is still happening.
Has to b the battery,if you changed the alternator then the batter isnt supplying any power to your sensors and computer. if your battery is weak the car might run at idle, but as soon as your drive your useing more draw. swap out a battery from a friend and you should b good.

sounds like it's your alternator, your alternator charges your battery and runs car once it is started. if you have a bad alternator your battery light will come on, and shortly after your vehicle will die, unable to restart without a jump. I would take your battery to autozone or an auto shop to have your battery and alternator tested.
