Mein Auto: 2007 328i
Need to access trunk of 2007 328i

Hi. I locked the keys in the trunk of my 2007 328i at the grocery store. If I have a locksmith get me into the cabin will the manual trunk release work or do I need to get a new key from BMW? If new key can they cut the manual access key at the dealer?

Please don't ask how I did it or lecture me about needing a spare key.

So it sounds as if you locked the passenger compartment, and closed the trunk lid while your keys were inside?

The trunk release button (by driver's left knee) should open the trunk, so if locksmith can get you inside, you are home free. If new manual access key is needed, this is cut by BMW NA and sent to the dealer (not sure if this might only be ordered upon proof of vehicle ownership to the dealer when ordering).

Thanks! Are you sure that trunk release button will work even if the car is locked?

This article has all the different ways to get it open if the button for the trunk
won't work I think it will.
If you have a car with fold down rears that would be the super obvious way to
get them.
