Mein Auto: 2000 BMW 328Ci
Angry Power loss, rought idle and gas smell

Hi,
I have an issue with my 2000 328Ci. While driving, the engine suddenly lost power and was unable to maintain a steady idle. The engine has very little pedal response and smells unburnt gas. The EML and DSC indicators went on. I researched on multiple forums, and I suspected a possible vacuum leak. I found a big tear in the intake boot and fixed it but the engine still runs like crap. Does anyone have an idea what the problem could be?

Thanks
