PLZ Help Me~ the car would stalled

Hey guys, I am a new owner of a used E92 M3
I only had this car for a month but I am having few problems with the car.
Please, guys, help me with these problems.
So after I got the car, I had numerous incidents where the car would stalled for no reason.
Today it happened again.
The RPM swings between 500 and 1k repeatedly and then engine stalled as like it couldn’t breathe.
The engine stalling only happened after I filled the gas tank to a little over the top (I usually give it a little more gas after the gas nozzle releases its trigger when the tank is almost full)
It also happened when I was stopping at a red light, the RPM would just shake pretty hard and then the engine stalls.
Do you guys know what kind of problem I am running into?
Please help,
Thank you!

Probably the gas. The manual states the CAR can stall with shitty gas.
Also check if you have current software for the car.

There is an extensive thread about this. To cut thing short, if this only happens after you fill gas each and every time, it is almost certainly the fuel purge valve.

In the mean time, you can put it in neutral and give it a little bit of gas when the rev drops to prevent it from stalling. Once it goes away after a short drive, it wont happen again until the next time you fill up. I assume beside stalling at idling after filling up you have no other issue right? Because it could point to something else otherwise.

No one here can diagnose the car from your typing. Bring it to a shop
