need help with trunk

so i bought a car today bmw that i want to part out
and i noticed it has alot of things in the trunk
the catch is i have no key nor do i want to get it cut because that will make me dash more money towards the car which i dont have
i want to open the trunk... what is the best way to get that sucker open without a key because i want to know what is in the trunk.
and i also want to take off my back tail lights so either way the trunk has to come off..

please all you pros let me know
i am familiar with e36 but never dealt with e30
what do i have to do ?

if you take off the back seat there is a sheet of metal tacked in that covers the ski hole pass thru pry it off and you will have a decent viewing hole and you stick a light in since your parting it why dont you just cut up that panel?

If it's being parted, cut the trunk open with an angle grinder.
