After reading your symptoms, you have some sort of electrical issue.

The M54 has multiple timing chains, your issue is very likely not timing related. Chains last a loooong time.
I would suspect a bad battery (even though you said it was recently replaced).

A bad battery will also kill an alternator, as it tends to try and work harder to charge the battery.
