Question stalling

Hi all
Just picked up my new old bimmer...a 95 318i with 165000 km (about 102000 miles) on it - happy happy happy ---except for the stalling which sometimes happens. First thing in the morning it'll start...and unless I hit the accelerator to keep up the rpm's it'll stall. Once I get going, it almost never will stall even in traffic. It'll also do the same thing if I drive it, park it for a while then re-start it. Previous owner replaced the MAF with a used one on the advice of a BMW dealer to fix the problem but eiether the replacement is bad or there was nothing wrong with it.

Any ideas...someone over at Pelican parts suggested maybe leaks in the intake bellows, but I took it off and there are no obvious cracks in it.

Help restore my initial excitement please!!
