Unhappy 2000 w 330d cutting out when accelerating

Hi all my names simon and have just become the proud owner of a nice looking w reg 2000 e46 330d se i bought it from auction yesterday but i think ive been done as the car wont accelerate when driving
if you rev it with the car stationary it will rev flat out no problem and engine sounds beautiful and quiet doesnt run lumpy or anything at all
but when you drive off and try to put your foot down it completely shuts off and engine cuts out totally just leaving ignition lights on and you coasting
there is no managment lights on the dash or anything
if you just bearly touch the throttle it will drive but any attempt to put you foot down results in complete engine cut out can anyone help me

Means you have a problem in your fuel system, if the car is having a running issue it sounds like you low fuel pressure, could be a clogging filter, dying pump or a leak (internal or external if you see a puddle). Could be a sensor failing as well but you shouldn't have the dying out if it was JUST a sensor.
