It's the steering angle sensor (SZL is the BMW code for the failed part). Once that fails, brake light turns yellow, DSC stops working, brake assist won't hold at a stop on a hill, and FTM stops working. Covered under warranty (hopefully you're still within 4yr/50k).
+1 Happened to our '06 330i 2 weeks ago. If you happen to put on your turn signal you may notice that it flashes, but will not turn off automatically. I told our SA that and he said "it sounds like your SZL sensor is bad". That was indeed the problem
