Strange Intake gasket issues

I've just replaced the intake gaskets twice on my 2005 325xi because the very front gasket blows out. The engine runs beautifully when it is replaced, but after a few weeks/months the new one has blown on the exact same cylinder and the car runs extremely rough. I don't understand why this is going on and haven't seen anything online that addresses this problem.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Intake gaskets should be under vacuum and should get sucked instead of blown out. Missing any bolts or fi? That gasket should sit in a groove and not move ever.

True. No bolts were missing and the gasket was in the groove. I turned to the forum because the experience was unexplainable. It is back together and running normally for now, but I'm definitely holding my breath.
