Thanks again!

If you have a mechanic that can run a diagnostics scan....SOMETHING should show up .

It may end up being something even ECU related.
^This. It could be the ignition, but a scan with a proper set of tools that does a full check of all modules should turn up any faults (current or stored). I'm not talking about a simple OBDII tool, but one that uses the right head unit and BWM software (GT1 or equivalent).
