Many of the intermittent and random things like this can usually be traced to a loose ground..The thing to do in the event of not having a manual is to look for ground attachment points under the hood on fender and firewall studs. and under the dash on both sides. look for loos wires on studs. if you find one remove it clean with a wire brush just enough to shine it some and re install. I am a bit new to BMWs but have seen this on many vehicles.
