Probably something in the ignition. Start with the easy solution the spark plugs and let me know if that doesn't work.

If you want the longest lasting get Bosch irridium +4's (pricey). For performance get Bosch platinum +4's (I have those in my car).

If you want to put Japanese plugs in your German car go for it. They should do fine.
