Have 2011 550i with Automatic Steptronic transmission. Unlike prior model years, is there no way to shift to neutral with the ignition off (emergency neutral)? Prior years had a tool in the trunk toolbox and a switch in center console to allow this.
I wish to have my car transported aboard a flatbed (towed). The car needs to be in neutral to be pulled up onto the flatbed and then while it is being transported on the flatbed it should be in neutral with the ignition off.
Appears as if the only way for this model to be in neutral is with the ignition on in radio mode. The off modes default to Park unless I am missing something.
Please help.
Anyone ever respond to this?:dunno: Good to know what the plan is during an emergency.
