Mein Auto: 2015 X5
It's 2012, Automatic Transmission, Steptronic.
Vehicle rolls fine when the engine is running once it's shifted to neutral. I wanted to let it continue rolling when I shut the engine off, but apparently it shifts back to park automatically the moment I turn the engine off. Does this mean there is no way to push the vehicle or roll it on a hill if I run out of gas? My previous vehicle had mechanical AUTO shifter which would go into N once key was in ON state (not running) but BMW seems to have set everything electronically, so even if I hit the start button twice (ON state, not RUN) I still cannot shift the transmission to N.
