Intermittent Starting Problem

Hi All,
I have a 1995 525I with a starting problem that doesn't happen all the time.
Let me explain what happens.
When I first start the car in the morning or anytime of day for that matter, the car starts right up---no problem at all.
When I drive for a short distance or long distance and stop somewhere and turn the car off-----if I try to start the car again within the first five minutes eveything is still ok---no problem.
But If I drive somewhere and turn the car off for 15 minutes or so-- that's when I have the starting problem. It takes several times of cranking the car over and over and then it finally starts.
If I let the car sit-- for a couple of hours after driving it--then it starts fine again.
Has anyone else experienced this symptom?
Thanks for any suggestions.

Thumbs up Intermittent Starting and cutting off

Replaced starter switch on steering column fixed - fingers crossed. About $350 at dealer.

I hope for $350 you got the whole starter replaced too.. I could get you a starter switch for less than $100.

But let us know if that works, a lot of people are having the same issue.
