intermitant power problem

Hi my names Alex and just bought a BMW 323i SE 1997, great car in great condition altho do have one irritating intermitant problem with it!! Can you help???
Every so often it loses power still drives but like its not firing on all 6 cylinders, to rectify i just pull over turn the engine off and then restart and its fine!!
Any ideas people would love to hear your thoughts, was thinking maybe a dodgy lead??

Alex

An ignition connection issue may well be a good place to start.
