Bingo, you just describled the sound and nature of the e36M3 defective
starter. Mine has made the same sound for two winters and has started
sounding off again as the temp has lowered to below 32 degrees. My dealer
says he will replace it closer to the end of the warranty, hoping BMW designs
a better fitting starter than the current replacement. Good luck.
