330i Stalling as I pull away at lights???

Hi guys, I drive a 2001 330i and recently (past 3 months) it has been stalling as I pull away from the lights, it dosen't do it all the time, and it seems the revs drop very low just as I put my foot down on the accelerator and it will either stall or hiccup (not sure if that describes it properly). I put a new battery in, thinking that was the problem but it still happens.
I took it to a local garage and he drove it and it was fine, he said sometimes they have to be driven hard and fast. I tried this but it continues to stall.
I'm thinking it could be either a blockage in the fuel distribution maybe? or something along those lines, I am not a mechanic and dont know my way around cars, but that seems the logical choice.
Does anyone have any experience with this sort of thing, or have any ideas before I start throwing more money at the problem!
Thanks in advance.
btw its an automatic and has done @45k miles
