Has the fuel filter been changed? If not that would be a good place to start. Good luck.

Change/thoroughly clean the idle control solenoid. It may be sticking and causing rough idling.
Cleaning it is unlikely to be more than a short-term solution.

If the fuel filter has been replaced, then maybe these are other reasons:
1. intake camshaft sensor (known to go bad on BMW E46s). ~$100 part.
2. fuel injectors (though I doubt they go bad that easily). ~$100/ piece. Your car has 6.
3. Ignition coils. ~$90 a piece. Your car has 6.
4. mass air flow sensor. Again, another expensive part. ~$300.

It sounds like your vehicle needs a major tune-up. Try putting in some fuel injector cleaner gas additive and a new air intake filter.

sounds like you have a very dirty mass air flow meter. invest in a new one and be sure to clean the throttle body with an appropriate cleaner and tooth brush.

Reduced engine power is just like a safe mode. First things first, clean your throttle body. It's possible the butterfly is sticking. Disconnect the battery, clean your throttle body with throttle body cleaner, must be nice and shiny. When finished, drive around for 20 minutes or so with all accessories off. This will allow the computer to relearn a properly functioning throttle body.
