Car lost power on me and shut off, can't get it back running

Hey everyone,

I drive a 2011 335is coupe. So I was driving tonight at highway speeds, when all of a sudden the engine light came on, along with service engine soon, and I felt a sputter and a loss of power when I tried to give it gas. I pulled over as soon as I could because the car felt like it wasn't going to make it very far. Once, I was stopped, the engine could barely idle and if I tried to give it gas, nothing would happen. Sure enough, the car shut off on me. Tried to restart it and it would struggle, sort of turn on, then turn off. Got it towed home and I'll have it taken to the dealer tomorrow to get serviced so I just wanted to see what kind of input I could get on here first.

Thanks!
