116i won’t start, any ideas?

Just bought my 19 year old son a 12 plate 116i 55k mint car, drove back from Manchester around 230 mile, it didn't miss a beat drove spot on. Gets home, he goes out proud as punch to show his mates phones me 10 minutes later to say its broken down, gets to where he's broken down and ask him what's happened, drivetrain on the screen drive moderately, next thing looses power, puts it in neutral tries reving it, nothing it dies. Ive tried starting it and its trying but not firing. Any help or ideas as I've got a very wounded 19 year old.
Cheers guys.

Sounds like it tried to limp home. Could be almost anything. Most obvious there gas in the car?
