BMW 320i jerking/loss of power/over revs

Hi guys,

Recently joined this forum in search for an answer....

I bought my first ever BMW (320i 50k) in July 2014. I had an Audi A3 2.0TDI which was an amazing car and never let me down.

320i SE 57 REG only 50k.

The 320i was my dream car, a gift to myself after graduation :-)

After buying the BMW, 2 months into driving it I noticed the following issues:
Jerking in gears 1/2/3
Loss of power when I put my foot down - almost like the engine is skipping a beat
Once at 10mph in 2nd the car jerked and cut off resulting in the engine management light coming on
Usually in the the first gear, occasionally I find the car revving quite high before moving off.

Gave it to a BMW specialist - diagnostics identified many sensors came up - cleared the memory and took it back two weeks later after the light came on that the NOX sensor was faulty. Replaced it at 450 and still same issues.

I feel extremely let down. After reading much on the 320i, these were common faults I gathered...

Common Problems:

Fuel Injectors
Coil Packs
High Pressure Fuel Pump
Spark Plugs
NOX Sensor
Cam Shaft Sensor

Anyone with similar issues?

I don't feel there is a fairly straight forward answer for this issue. According to others who have paid out 0000's to fix the problem, the problem still hasn't been solved.
