My 325i has been cutting out when the engine is cold and you start to push on the gas. I have replaced the plugs, wires, cap, rotor, fuel filter, has a clean k&n air filter. I have thought it could be the timing. The belt was replaced at 127k miles and its now at 204k. Is there any other things I should check on it?

Clogged Injectors? Crud built up on the back sides of the valves?
Do a search on this forum for "Hot Soak" and you will find several resources for this method of cleaning the injectors and valves. It helped my car a lot, although I was not having stalling issues, mine just hesitated and stuttered when I stepped on the gas, but the hot soak fixed it right up!

Hopefully this is all it will take for you to fix your car (it is fairly quick and CHEAP!)
