I would check firstly

1. Air pipes for any leaks, any rips or tears holes etc in the air system quite common on BMW's
2. Air mass sensor or MAF sensor, this regulates the fuel to air mixture and often the cause of many a fault on many modern cars.
3. ignition coils, or coils packs if they have got wet or too cold and condensed then they short out. In all honesty with all the snow we have been having I would think this the most likely cause of the 3.

If you need more help get back to me with more specific information about the running of the engine, how it idles accelerates etc.

Water not staying in radiator no sign of leaks in my 2000 bmw

does the car seem to run roughly? sounds like a possible head gasket or a cracked cylinder. is there an unusual amount of moisture coming out of the exhaust pipe, would smell like antifreeze gaseous sweet smell. a crack will fill either the top of a given cylinder but only when the engine is not running. head gasket will dump water into the oil giving it a milky look also will be prone to overheating
