Welcome to Bimmerfest! Is it possible something went wrong with your clutch and you can't push the clutch pedal in far enough to engage the clutch interlock sensor?

I dont see a interlock sensor under or close to the clutch pedal.
Only the break pedal has one switch

Got it, so it is part of the clutch master cylinder. That still doesn't change what I said about the potential issue unless you can get the clutch pedal all the way to the floor.

Could be a hydraulic issue. You may need to flush & bleed the clutch slave cylinder.

Yes, and it uses the same fluid reservoir as the brake system, so keep an eye on that fluid level if you bleed much out of it.
