the statement about all bmws since 94 having electronic throttles is bogus.

regardless, pushing in the clutch/slapping the shifter into neutral is very simple and something that anyone needs to be familiar with as a runaway engine can happen on ANY internal combustion car regardless of electric throttle or not.

hell on the our m54 based cars the throttle body doesn't even open until more then roughly 30% of throttle is used, the idle control valve does the grunt of the low load/low input work.
