Idle control valve is likely a culprit but the thing is sometimes she will settle at idle perfeclty and I have to keep revving her to get the bad idle again, other times she will just consistently idle badly - does this sound like an idle control valve issue???
1st Welcome back to our forum......long time no see.
You remember way back when my engine got flooded and I had to replace it.....the good news I do have an extra ICV sitting somewhere in my garage; the bad news is to find it.....how about this: I will look for it; once found will take a pic or two for you, also I will send you the part number ( I am not so sure if it fits your 523!!!!!...so check it out...it came out of 97 528i......Let me know if it fits please...and it is yours.....

What about O2 sensors? They cause bad idling when they are turning bad.
And I'm surprised you could still drive the car with the MAF sensor disconnected!? When mine was faulty, the engine kept stalling!
