F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
The 2 Series coupe is the replacement for the E82/E88 1 series coupe. Production starts in November 2013 on the 228i (N20) and M235i (N55) coupes. Look for them in dealerships in February 2014. The convertible F23 2 series will follow in the fall of 2014.

2 Series Auto Transmission (Question/Concern)

I've had 2 earlier BMW's and am new to the 2 Series with the new AUTO. The AUTO now has a button on the top of the Shift Lever to select PARK. Can the vehicle in any way be put into PARK while driving if that button were inadvertently touched. Or, is PARK totally locked-out unless the vehicle is TOTALLY stopped? I would certainly think the later but?????

Engaging "PARK" on a new BMW (2014)

Thanks for the reply. My only comment is that it appears that PARK can be engaged before the wheels stop turning TOTALLY. Not that I'm experimenting with it. I would have thought that PARK would be locked-out until ALL TIRE ROTATION has STOPPED completely. Thanks again for the response.

You are correct. I do not know the exact threshold, but there are instances where a rolling vehicle can be put in park. I have managed to let go of my brake and pushed the park button to stop the car inadvertently while it started to creep forward. The car should not park when doing so would cause injury or drivetrain failure. Trust BMW did not overlook this.
