Here's a relatively easy thing to about unlocking your instrument cluster to see what the battery voltage is...especially during the times that it won't start.

If you are unfamiliar with unlocking the cluster...there are multiple videos on YouTube (for the various generation of BMW instrument clusters) that shows how. Find a video that has the type of cluster you have...all the generational cousins of your model/model year (e70/e60/e65/e63/e90/etc) will have the same instructions and procedures for unlocking the any of their videos will work for you.
