Did you guys know you could push start with the brake compressed, then enter your key and the car will start?? Or is mine just messed up

Does your car have comfort access?

If it does you do not need to put the key in at all.

I keep my key in my pocket and press brake and start. Love that feature.

You probably have Comfort Access. Try opening your door by just grabbing your drivers side door handle.

Same, if you push the brake and then push the button without having the key in but then push the key in no later than a second after it should start up.

I've done this before in my 06 E90 as well

I've notice that after I've been driving, if I stop, remove the key and kill the engine, I can start it back up by just pressing the button without the key in. I don't have CA.

This feature has been documented before. I use it to start cooling the car off on hot days before I load the kids in. I'll lock the doors with the fob while I go get the kids.

I have the semi-comfort access option; it was FREE! Basically the previous owner pulled the key out when they weren't suppose to and now I can leave the car running, take the keys with me, lock the doors, and jump in a store to grab something quick (ie: can of soda/coffee). I love it!!!
