i checked everything but could solve the problem. i finally consulted with a bmw mechanic, he asked me to bring the car over for him to check. he hooked up a professional scanner which he called it a euro typed scanner. It indicated that the problem was with the CRANK shaft position senor. He then hooked up the scanner he called Japanese scanner and it showed a camshaft position sensor. So i asked him to replace the crank shaft position sensor and the problem went away. I was not aware of scanners specifically for euro cars versus japanese cars.
anyway guys, thank you all so much for all of your advice and support.
