For the record, someone asked how to open the doors when the car battery is dead over here today:
> E39 (1997 - 2003) > Car battery is dead and cannot open doors! Please Help!

And this trunk related post was also today:

It seems like everyone has heard of the concept but I haven't seen it done on an e39. I've seen the video of where it was done on an e38, but from what i can gather from realoem the locks arent quite the same. So can anyone tell me exactly where to drill? When I took off the license there was already a hole drilled dead in the center, but I havent been able to find the cable I'm supposed to be hooking, so I'm thinking it way be in the wrong place. Please help me, thanks.
Please read the suggested threads and add value, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person stands on your shoulders.
