Engine died going around corner

Coming downhill then turning onto my street, the engine died and wouldn't allow me to restart for a good minute or so. All the while sitting in the middle of the intersection. Gas tank was half full. An error message popped up for a few seconds that said something about "Anti-Roll" and "Curves" then went out. A lot going on while facing oncoming traffic, car wouldn't start and trying to read the dash! Car is running fine now, but worried that the next time my wife may be driving. Took to dealer and they want $150 (non-refundable) to diagnose because no faults were found. Thoughts?

Smart idea is to read errors from CAS and other modules

there used to be problems on earlier BMWs with the gas pump and sumps in turns. those issues were with 1/4 tank or less.

There are other KNOWN issues related to the suspension that throws a code and usually puts the car in "limp mode". Looks like yours simply skipped that "meddlesome" intermediary step. Try searching on active suspension or other similar words.

The error message said something about anti=roll or something around curves but was only on few a couple of seconds. Once the car started and did a check everything was ok, according to the car.

Car still running fine since. Did check all fluids, especially steering and suspension reservoir; was a little low. Oil was a quart low. Took it back to dealer since it was just recently serviced and made sure ALL fluids were "topped off" and all good...so far!
