: : I am having problems with my ignition (engine turns off while driving and can be immediately turned back on) I was wondering if anyone has had this problem with their M3? Could it be the switch, a wire or even the box? I welcome any suggestions

: First place I'd check would be either the main or fuel pump relays behind the coolant overflow tank. This is a typical complaint when these go bad. Make sure you have the new white plastic main relay and not the original metal one.

i have had the same problem with my old 325 e30 it turned out to be the fusale link giong from the batery to the alternater.what would happen was when the car got hotter the link didnt burn but was broken by somthing in the trunk, so when the car would warm the wire would lose connection and the car would stall. You could crank it right back up when this happened but would almost die again ammediately. So i had the car serviced and i turned out to be a $15.00 wire
