330Ci intermittent lack of power & hesitant starting...HELP!

Hi there, I have had my 2001 (51 UK plate) 330Ci for a couple of months and it has been great. Today however I was driving around as normal this morning, parked up for an hour then went back out to the car and it was hesitant to start which has never happened before. I noticed the EML light come on whilst I was attempting to start it. Once it did start, performance was down and it wasn't wanting to accelerate where normally it pulls like a train. I took it to my local garage and they put in on a scanner and it came back with nothing. I then drove it again for around 15 minutes this evening and initially it seemed fine, then again the lack of power started again. I had to park up for a couple of minutes to go into a shop and then after it was reluctant to start again and when it did it smelt like a burning smell. Just wondering if anyone has had this problem before and/or can shed any light on it, it's going back to the garage tomorrow but would like to have an idea beforehand!

Thank you! :-)
