    Do you have a sunroof? if yes is that also temperamental?

    If yes then most likely your comfort relay behind the glovebox.

    If no sunroof still suspect the comfort relay.

    I would replace the relay and check the harness around relay for corrosion etc ..

    If it's still the same, i would be looking at a suspect window motor regulator.
