Multiple misfire 2005 X5 4.4

I have owned my X5 for more than 5 years and in all that time I've had this problem with a multiple misfire code. It doesn't happen all the time and could be 4 or 5 five months before it happens again. When it does happen it's almost always in the morning at first start. It is more likely to happen when its not being driven often and its a cool day.
This is what happens. I turn the key it fires and runs extremely rough. You can't even give it gas because your afraid you'll break a mount or something. Most of the time if you turn the key off and on it runs fine. Usually if you let it run rough it will stay running rough until you turn it off. Sometimes it will run a little rough and even out right away
It's been really cold lately and It's happening more frequently so I'm concerned about it.
The dealership has scanned it many times and all they tell me is its reporting a multiple misfire but but can't tell what it is.
