when starting my 525i it often doesn't start good meaning that it has problems staying "alive", when you hit the accelerator the engine goes to 2000 rpm let go of the accelerator and the engine just dies, goes off. This also happend to me while i was driving , taking a turn went from 3th gear to 2 nd and the engine stopped it didn't went idle instead it just died.
i don't race my car from a to b, i drive normal.
BMW garage told me that they only have found a problem a sensor malfunction but told me that even without that sensor these problems shouldn't occur.

at first i thought it was the way i started the engine or the fuel but it goes from bad to worse, its happening more often and i feel unsafe in my car.

Somebody had the same ????

or any suggestions???
