Key Stuck in 2008 335xi coupe

Hey guys my mom took my car this morning and when she got home she woke me up and told me she couldn't get the key out if my car! I rushed out of bed still in a daze and went to try to take it out! I can't get the key out! I tried starting it and it won't even start but the power goes on when I press the button. Help please!

i know, right man! thank god that's all it was!! i jumped out of bed and didn't even think about looking to see if it was in park because i was still half asleep. i read a few things online and i thought i was going to have to spend a few thousand after reading everybody's stories...so i decided to go outside and try it again and WAAAAMMMM!!!!! car was still in D!!! but you don't even understand the amount of relief i experienced one i saw the car in D than put it back in park and she ran like a champ again ....i would have been so mad if it was broke because my cars warranty ended a few months ago!

i had to tell my mom to never drive my car again LOL
and she's especially NEVER driving it when my JB4 comes in by next week

This is one reason it's a good idea to always set the parking brake when you get out. It can keep these mistakes from getting expensive.

Haha yeah, my mom didn't pay for it, i sold my 2008 Range Rover HSE and was going to buy a M3 but bought the step below (335) to see how I like BMW and I fell inlove with BMW so I'm going to do full bolt on and JB4 than get the M3 or maybe M4 in a year or so
