06 E46 M3 seems to be having some trouble starting when warm - SMG engages neutral NO PROBLEM THERE but starter 'clicks' 1-4 times before turning the motor over, sometimes there is a slight delay.

Started last summer went away for the cold months now the click is back the click seems to only happen when the car is warm or when it is warm outside (I hardly ever do multiple short trips).

Is my starter going out? I ask because if so I'd like to replace it before I end up stranded somewhere, but I don't want to if its unnecessary, lots of time and some $$ too!

Also the car has always started. Had it a year and sometimes it clicks 4 times but always starts. Strangely enough the problem does not seem to be getting worse.
