I too have the similar problem (also using 6000K bulbs). except mine is the opposite of your problem. Intermittently the right light doesn't come on at start up or turning on front lights. It is a 50/50 whether it comes on or not.

Changing the D1S bulbs on a E92 is more a PIA because the wheel/tire need to come off and removal of half of the wheel liner needs to be removed in order to get to the light bucket light cover. Geez!
