Door Lock!!

The other day i was at my friends place swimming!
So I locked all doors, then when i wanted to get changed i only opened my trunk!
when I got changed and all, I left my car key in the short i was wearing before in the trunk.
So basically im locked out of my car. I called BMW they said that the only solution is to use my spare key! I asked about roadside assistance if that will help, they said theres a chance to break the glass!!!!

If this does happen again, does anyone know a way i can open the car??
I have 325ci cabrio 06!!

Same thing happened to me last friday. Luckily my buddy gave me a lift home to grab my spare keys and all the way back down to my car... cost us around an hour.

Since you have a Cabrio, is there any way to get a wire into the car through / around the soft top and reach the unlock button? But then you'd basically be breaking into your own car...

Yea ehh that sucks man !!
No theres no way i can put a wire into it!
I acually heard a story that if you use your phone and talk to someone with ur spare key, he can press the unlock button and u put ur phone near the car sensor that it will open!! I dont think its truu but hey it could work out.

Hrrmm... interesting. Another urban legend to be tested out lol. I dunno if it's possible but it's definitely worth a try next time!
Ya, I think with all the failsafes, locking your key into your truck is the ONLY way that you can lock yourself out of the car. I am NEVER changing my my truck ever again!

I heard the same thing, it might be a legend, but it's definitely worth a shot. With all the RF cell phones produce, i wouldn't be surprised if it works.
