Is the key stuck in it? Or will it just not turn far enough to start the car? Try turning the steering wheel once the key is in the ignition and turned clockwise. You may have to use a little force on the steering wheel.
My Z4 does this sometime if I turn the wheel all the way left or right. I have to grab the steering wheel and turn real hard in the direction of the front wheels while turning the key and that always works for me. Good luck !
