If anyone could help it would be great, I have had it into BMW who say they dont know what the problem is to cause this problem.
It means one of two things - either your tires are slipping (the loss of power is the stability control trying to regain traction), or the car thinks your tires are slipping for some reason.

Are you driving in near-freezing temperatures with summer tires, or tires that are bald? If your tires are not bald and seasonally appropriate, maybe it's a clutch issue?
