Q: Engine stalling, idling bad on 1995 BMW 325i

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I took my '95 325i in because the engine was "seeking idle" when cold. They replaced the air mass meter, but it soon was running even worse. Now I can only get it to stay going at a stop if I put it in park, and keep my foot on the gas, as it is now idling very badly all the time, not just when cold. The check engine light is on, too. I'm taking it back to the mechanic tomorrow, but I wanted to know if there was any info that might help to fix it. Also, would it risk damaging the motor to drive it in this state about 7 miles to the shop?

I don't know. It did seem to get worse with the AC on, and the AC wasn't blowing very cold, even when at the coldest setting.
