Probably a new battery .(for starters at least)
You can charge from charger points under the hood
you don't have to take the battery out.
Average life on a battery is 6 years has your been changed?
Whats the resting voltage and the voltage with the motor running?
Many people buy a battery tender if they do not use there car a lot
because these are always use electricity even when they sit .

First things first Freshazfuk - let's [check that battery] - result?

Yep, a BMW is a sensitive beast. Like today in San Francisco, when the power's bad just about everything stops. Oof!
