Actually what It seems to me is the fuel pump. The E36 bodystyle has an affinity for fuel pumps at that age and mileage, heat buildup in the pump and age are factors. And before we totally condemn said pump, I would put a pressure gauge in the feed line and see what it tells me. It might be working now, but as it dies at about the 2 minute mark, it could be due to the pump showing signs of checking out. Start heree and then when that is done, we can go to the next thing on the list, whatever that might be.
