I had this happen with my Honda Accord... So we sold it dirt cheap to a neighbor. They were nice enough to stop by one day and say it was nothing big. "A leak in the fuel line" It did exactly what you are describing! Would start fine drive a little ways, then clunk like it was out of gas. Sometimes might even try to start again.. usually after 30mins- 2 hrs would do the same thing. Crazy!!

Sounds like the catalytic converter has become blocked and causing pressure to build up in the exhaust system to the point the engine can't run.
We used to stuff raw potatoes into tail pipes of our rival's cars as kids, causing the same problem or the shooting of raw potao projectiles from tailpipes!
Martin, it's time for a new catalytic converter!
I could tell you to take a long drill bit and perforate the converter's honeycomb structure several times through the converter's exhaust pipe fitting holes, but that would be illegal, so I'm NOT going to suggest that. We don't advocate any illegal actions here at FixYa.com!
Martin, hope this helps you solve your problem, be so kind as to rate my help, ad good luck with the Beemer!

CHECK YOUR AIR FILTER IS GOOD TO GO AND CLEAN THEN GET YOUR AIRFLOW METER CHECKED OUT
