Can't get my key out !!

I have a 2000 328i sport

few months ago. my key was stucked in the ignition. Won't able to turn the key back to 0 position. It stayed in the 1 position. After stuggled for long time, I was able to turn to 0 position and get the key out. Spray some white lithium grease. No problem ever since.
Last night it happens again. Am I looking into replacement of the ignition cylinder? Is this common to E46?

Any comments welcome.
TIA

Ron
