If you hook the car up the computer (ista) you can see the injection values of each injector. That will let you know pretty quickly if its the injectors. They could also check the timing at the same time to rule out other possible issues. There are so many things that could cause the rpm to drop such as a failing alternator, a failing AC compressor putting extra load on the car.
Nice. Got to keep the car you started with. The x3's are nice. I would get diesel if I can do it all over again.

I hear the Diesel engines are a lot stronger.

I'm keeping my mk6 forever. Especially because it's a 6speed GTI and I've done wayyy too many engine mods to it. Check out my Instagram account: @supreme_gti

I plan to do mods on my x3 as well. After it's paid off.

Priorities first.

I'll get my x3 scanned first and go from there.
It's nearly impossible to diagnose over the phone or over forums.

It's a good start but the real fix is at the shop.

Thank you all for your input! Drive safe and drive smart.
