According to the SA for me today, they'd be willing to write off one failure as a freak accident. Two, and they'd simply replace all 6.

I suspect I have a bad coil or plug. (or going bad)

What struck me is, why does the hesitation only sometimes present itself, only to go away?

To do it right, you're going to have to either

Not sure, but according to what I see, you have 2006 E90. The LCI Halogens (2010+) seem like they actually put out a decent light.
I have no idea what the 2006-2009 halogen light output is.
