Locking Car Issues

Don't know how long this is been going on with other BMW/DCT models, as I had a 2011 M3 without this problem.

It seems that in order to get my 2014 M5 to lock, I now have to press the start/stop button twice, or leave the transmission in drive. This is quite annoying. Valet or friends think the car is locked because the horn sounds like a Honda, and they leave it alone. I'm afraid I'll get ripped off one day.

Yes, I could teach each valet person or friend who drives my car how to properly turn off my car, but I'm looking for a way to have it go back to how every other BMW was with one button press. I'm getting quite annoyed with it.

Is this something BMW can change or something I can get altered by 3rd party software, etc?
