2004 325i

So I recently purchased a 2004 325i with 105k miles. The car sputters and has rough idle. Levels out after a few minutes. Slow to accelerate and stalls out if too quick of acceleration. Automatic transmission. Any advice at first course of action?

The first step always is to have the codes read. That will tell you what the engine computer sees as symptoms. There are active codes that will trigger the SES/CEL light and there are pending codes. Reading the codes should tell you about both.
