Why on earth you doing all those steps? With foot on brake, press "P" to put the X1 in park and push the Start/Stop button. That's all you do.

The engine will turn off with the first press, but the radio, and other accessories are still on. You have to press the start/stop again to shut it completely off (with foot off the brake). I have comfort access so I never use the key in the slot.
