This may be a stupid question, but this is my first BMW and I dont have the owner's manual. I've got a 1990 325i, 4-door. I can't seem to lock my doors without using the key. When all the doors are shut I can press down the door lock button and they lock. When I open the driver's side door and attempt to press down the lock, it doesnt budge. So I have to shut the door and use the key. Is this just how this model is, or am I missing something? Thanks for your help.

That is the correct operation for your door locks. It will prevent you from locking your keys inside the car. If you hold up on the outside door handle while door is open you should be able to lock the door by depressing on inside lock.
