BMW has also made some commonplace controls needlessly complicated. The automatic transmission's electronic lever always defaults back to its center position, rather than staying in the position you selected. You flick the lever forward from Park to engage Reverse, the opposite of most other shifters, while Park is activated by pushing a button. This takes getting used to. Should you come to a stop and flick the lever forward, thinking you've engaged Park, you'll find yourself in Reverse instead.
They're talking rubbish. You press the park button for "park" you don't push the lever at all.
