Thanks to everyone for their replies.
Honestly I don't know anything about engines and don't dare to try to fix my bmw, especially now that it's out of warranty. I spent about 1000$ replacing the Idle air control valve, because that's what the bmw technician said is making my car stall out during the wintertime.
I brought to other garages and they said to bring to them when the car stalls so they can check out the check engine light. They don't understand that by the time I get the car there, the engine will have warmed up and I can't prove to them the car stalls. They can only plug in their computers when the check engine light turns on after stalling.
This whole ordeal has really ruined my love for this car. It seems like noone cares and noone can fully solve this problem, especially at the bmw service after having spent so much money there.
I'll keep trying, I will have someone look at
1) any cracks in the valves or any tubing
2) MAF sensor
3) Vanos intake or exhaust solenoid electrical connector.
