i have a 2004 530i and not sure if they are quite similar in this case. mine isn't a problem, it's a convenience feature. bmw called it pathway lighting or something like that. when i turn off the engine, if i turn the signal (all the way, not just a tap) to either side, the headlight and brake light (just one side) will turn on. it'll help the passenger when you park in a dark area. i think you probably want to check your signal light. hope this will help.
