X3-2007 power/limp issues

Help please, my x3 keeps dropping into limp mode .. I think! It keeps dropping speed to a maximum of 60 mph ish and is really slow at accelerating and pulling away. The Cruise control also struggles, I have no errors and have had this liked to a computer 3 times with no faults found. Can anyone please offer done help

Cheers David

I'm having a similar situation but not as bad, it's intermittent now. But it looks like is starving for fuel. I'm eliminating a clogged filter possibility before taking it in for a popper fuel pump diagnose if it keeps doing it.
