if it's still running you should probably stall it or something to turn it off. I will search around for this problem.

try unplugging the center wire on the distributor, from the coil to the distributor.

I don't own a BMW, but I know the newer ones have emergency fuel shut off's, but I wouldn't be able to locate that for you.

btw, are you sure the car is in park. some cars don't allow you to turn the key to OFF unless its in park.

The safest thing is to pull the fuse to the fuel pump. Be VERY careful pulling any ignition wires as they can give you a real jolt.

yeah disconnnecting the battery was the best option. The other advice sounded too complicated for you....maybe it's a fail safe to prevent the battery from dying again!

BUt take 'er down to the dealership...
