Deadlocked 328ci. Keys in trunk

Hope everyone had a better April first than I did, but let me jump to the chase. I have a 2000 328ci, and have been manually locking her for well over 3 months now, since the key died. Yesterday I was planning on doing a little road trip to go suprise a friend for their birthday, but trapped my keys in my trunk along with a lot of my clothes and laptop. I've had 4 locksmiths come out. The first 3 took a normal approach ignoring my deadlocked warning, and the 4th crew wasn't able to pick the lock. Right now I see my only options being smash the window, drill a hole behind my lisence plate, or calling bmw and ordering a new key. What do you guys think I should do?

My Ride: 330ci coupe
Convertible or coupe , idk man if this is gonna help you : If you can manage to open the hood , take the driver side fender off , Then you unplug connector that goes into the door , take 12 volt battery ,2 pins wires , and the biggest wires in the connector are window motor , open up ur window , get inside take the rear seats out , if you got convertible kick out the skipass and reach for the keys , thats how i did it)
