Go to AutoZone and have your battery an alternator checked. Sounds battery-related

Ohhh buddy. Its the alternator. I had the exact same experience. I bought the alternator from ebay, its the same one as OEM. BMW uses a company called Valeo. Check your battery first, the alternator will act up after it heats up. So when you get it checked, they will most likely tell you it is ok.
