Mein Auto: 2000 BMW M5
e39 M5 stalls out

I'm hoping somebody else had this problem and was able to find the solution. I have a 2000 bmw m5. About a week ago, I started up my car and it was idling rough and when I started to drive it, it was somewhat under powered and running rough; I could hear it in the exhaust as well. Then, after a few minutes of driving the car ran fine. This happened again today while driving it. In the evening, when I pulled out of my parking lot, the car felt like it wasn't getting gas, like it was about to stall, and when I gave it gas there was no power and it stalled out after a few seconds. Now, every time I start it it idles rough, like it isn't getting gas, and then stalls out. When I press on the gas it stalls out immediately. The CEL wasn't on and still isn't on. Any one have a clue?
