    Check your key icon on the dash, does it flash or keep flashing? Also is there an ETC or EPC light ever on? because it sounds like either a theft control immobilizer issue or an electronic throttle body issue.
    The best thing is to pull the codes and verify fuel pressure, but a good german shop will have to do that.
