Seems that somehow the steering wheel lock also operates this little piece just inside the ignition, and that little piece is what prevents the key from going in. I'll post some pics of what I'm talking about in a few. Somehow the 2 things are linked. Look inside your own X5 ignition when you have a chance and you'll better see what I mean.
Looks like I remembered it a bit incorrectly. The mechanism rotating shaft that links to the steering lock is within the housing. The spring part pushes the center piece up against the steering shaft to lock. Eitherway it sounds like you need a new housing.

Here is a pic of one off ebay that you can see it:
