Have you checked for any codes?My e60 does this with the slightest crosswind on the highway.Approaching a semi does the same.

Check the tach ,see if your RPMs bump up with AC on.Load at idle will show more weakness under the hood than WOT.Spark plugs,vacuum leak,etc.Does the AC get cold?Probably not a bad compressor if so.
