EVL is a common problem on E90 I've been told up to late 2008 models when the got rid of the EVL lock, it's basically some electronics that senses if the key is inserted in the car, if it fails you going to have some problems starting the car because the sensors doesn't release the steering lock. In my case just bad luck I guess in regards of me 20 min before picking it up from BMW, that's at least what they are telling me at BMW..................................... just explained nicely why these cars cant be stolen once tampered with..

Hope you get it fixed soon..
