unfortunately this indicates that the steering lock has failed.

I am sorry but there is no workaround for this

BMW have indicated the cost for replacing the steering lock to be £750.
this seems to be a lot to lock the steering wheel. Also as the car is immobilized at home is there any way of moving it.

this is a fair cost. unfortunately this will be required before the car will start. it isn't so much to lock the steering wheel that is important at this time, it is letting the car start.
the vehicle will need to be towed, it cannot be driven or steered given the steering lock failure
