Hi lads, great forum you guys have here.
Basically lost my only key and I'm shopping around for the best price.
In the meantime I've tried opening the car from the outside but the inside latch does nothing and the centre console button does nothing.

Any reason why I can't open it from the outside using my "beaufifully crafted" tools hahah

Thanks guys and look forward to your answers

2003 E46 coupe 318ci, N42 engine

Got this sorted, forced out the small back light with a screwdriver and there's a small cord on the boot lock you can pull to open the boot and key was in there all along.
Got a light from a breakers yard for 20euro.
Delighted as I was quoted 250euro for a replacement key ***128521;***128521;
