My 1989 e24 63 5CSi stalled and left me stranded

I have had this car since new. I keep it well maintained at a local BMW only shop. The car runs like new. I was driving home from work and just got off the highway onto the on ramp and the car shook and the engine died. I could not restart it despite tuning over the starter several time. It took 20 minutes to tow to my shop. When they took it off of the hook, the car started immediately. I live in the south and it was a somewhat to day (approx 90 F) and I was driving in stop and go traffic for 25 minutes before the car died. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Check the idle control valve. On hot days mine would stall as well.
