It sounds like a Chopper! When you first start your car the Mass Air Flow sensor is bypassed until the car starts to worm up, then the computer starts to read the Mass Air Flow sensor and changes the engine parameters, if this is the case it can cause the engine to shutter etc... Another possibility is the Cam shaft Sensor, usually if this is the case, it will have problems from the start or not start and all.

Repost in the E36 section for a better response.
