Hi. I have a 06 525i and I just got home parked my car and was unable to take my key out the ignition. I tried to turn the engine
on and was unable to as well. Then I tried moving the shifter back and forth and did a semi hard push upwards and it got stuck on me now. But only this time I was able to turn the engine on and drove around the parking lot and shifted gears good. Then I parked it turned off engine and still unable to get key out. So I moved the gears abit and goodness I got lucky I got the key out!!! But I know that once I put the key back in I might go through this issue again. What will be that I need to start looking into as far as replacing parts???
