Mein Auto: 325i
325i question, I dont want 2get rip off.

Hopefully someone can help me or direct me. I was driving on the freeway, and my car felt like it was going out of gear (automatic), so as i pulling off to the side for a safe spot, it just went out. I tried restarting it and nonething happened. the only thing that did light up was "EML". my radio works, lites work every thing else works, so I didnt think it was the battery. Then I went and checked by gas cap and retighten it. after that my car started back up, so I drove it with no problem, and then it happened again, i could feel it was going to go out again, so I pulled over and sure enough it went out. So I had my car towed home. So before, I take it to a shop I was wondering if anyone had that problem and what it was. because if it was something minor and I dont want to have to pay extra at some bmw shop thats not honest.
