SOURCE: 1987 bmw 325 idles rough
I had a similar problem on a 318IS.
The rough idling was accompanied by an occasional whistling noise from the general engine area (caused by air leaks through the front and rear crankshaft oil seals).
The problem was caused by a faulty crankcase ventilation valve (Costs about $100).
The vent valve is easy to replace - (2 screws) - check the vacuum hose that connects this valve back to the tappet cover air vent nipple - it goes soggy and disintegrates.- replace with suitable oil resistant vacuum hose.
While on the job, clean the throttle body / butterfly valve internally with a soft toothbrush dipped in petrol. This cleans off sooty deposits - makes engine idle rpm more consistant.

SOURCE: rough idle stalls at low rpm's
hello first check your idle with the car running foot on brake see were your rpm reading is if your below 500rpm check your label underhood for your curb idle setting second see if theres a adjustment screw you can increase were your gas cable lever rest against your set screw underhood if you feel confident enough remove your iac motor idle air control valve if the bore were the end of the pintle extracts out to close has varnish builup our carbon it will stick creating vacuum leak type senario causing stalling rough idle sometimes even no start conditions good luck

Here are some of the causes of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
