Also I know this stuff works and found it worthwhile to do it after the next 10k.
In the UK we do not have the range available that you have in Canada and the States so this is probably the best we have!!!
There are companies in the UK now offering the full fuel delivery clean where they link your car to a separate fuel supply with all of the cleaners for about 85.......
What is an issue for all cars but especially the 6 series as you are now aware is the battery, and really cold conditions (but nothing compared to other countries) can have an affect!!!!
Sorry I meant that I did put the BG44K, but over 2 tanks of 40litres each and ran it empty. Then refilled as normal using Shell V-power only.

And I had the spark plugs changed recently, about 2 months ago.

Problem seems quite sporadic, thankfully restarting the car seems to fix the issue, however it does make me worry that 'somethings not quite right'
