Does the key turn at all?
yes -- 45 degrees in both directions
Is anyone there?
I'm here, sorry!
I'm guessing the car does not start though?
Should I step out also?
Car does not start and is locked in Park. I hesitate to have it towed because wheels are locked (in all-wheel drive).
Did you bounce out again?
I just saw my original post, and I have to apologize. I did say ignition at first, and that was wrong. I am sorry to have led you down the wrong path.
Where you able to get the lock assembly removed from the car? I think your best bet is to take the whole thing to the parts counter at your local BMW dealer so they can get you a new one.

Brendan -- Thanks much for your follow-up. I'd like to remove the first rating (Bad!) I gave you because I agree there was confusion. I read in the terms that I would be charged every time I gave a rating. How do I get "them" to change my rating to "Good Service"?
