New to me BMW

Hi, just wanted to introduce myself. Got my first ever BMW today, and couldn't be happier . She's a 2006 325I in Monaco blue. It has the sport, cold weather, and, premium packages. I was disappointed it didn't have HID's or the halo/angel eyes. My previous cars where Mustang's and most recently a 96 Maxima, so going from those to this is pure heaven.
I was so not used to these kind of cars that, that when they said my car was ready, I get in put the remote in push the button and couldn't start the car. WTF I thought to my self, come to think of it every time I test drove one the sales guy started it first. Ok I thought how hard could this be. I tried holding it down, still no, taped it quick still no. Tried pushing the gas, nope. Finally after siting their for what seamed like for ever defeated I went over to an employee washing car's and I said, "Hey I'm going to sound retarded but I've never owned one of these how do I start it?". Employee, "Did you hold the brake down?". Homer Simpson moment

If no codes are being thrown use Chevron Techron fuel injector cleaner (concentrate). It solves rpm fluctuating upon cold start-up. Also, for most BMW problems start off by scanning your car with the Peake Research Tool. It contains the actual BMW codes. If you want to register a newly installed battery for free (just buy a $10 cable) and google/download BMWLogger
