yeah i know it is very odd.....i checked all the fuses just to make sure and they are all good....also i did notice though that when you put the head lights on you can brighten the light that is already on and dim it but when the car is off and the lights off you can still see the lights on well and you cant adjust it with the dim switch...hmmmm

so even if you take your key out you see that its in park (maybe you forgot to put it in park) but you cant take the key out with it in anything other then park....bmw thinks lights look good, since my cabin in my m3 looks like a cockpit on a 747 with all the dam lights everywhere, the stereo, the shifter, the STEERING WHEEL ( i love those lights)....anything that can be lit up, is...

I know this thread is FOREVER old...but I just wanted to say that what you are discribing is normal operation...the light should go off after 16 minutes (approx) this is when the car goes into "sleep" mode. The AGS module is one of the last modules to "fall asleep". Freaks alot of people out until they know their car isn't broken.
