Mine does what you describe. Mostly when it is very hot or right after a short trip.
The anwer is a new starter. Mine has been doing for years and still doesn't need a replacement, as it is very rare. It actually hasn't done it much at all lately. Its been months.
The point: Spend $200 if you really want, but it may be a temp fluke that doesn't need addressing just yet.
And by yet I mean years.

glad I don't drive an i6.
Replacing the starter on the i4 is quite simple as acess is not restricted much at all. I also recall seeing a writeup on reomving the starter from below. I'll see if I can find it.
