how to open w/o keys which are locked in trunk

I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
The car is designed to only open with keys. You can't just open it without them.
Your only chance, save of drilling into the trunk or ordering a new key from bmw, will be to have a tow truck driver try to gain cabin access via a door wedge or similar entry tool and then try the trunk release button.
I would suggest just ordering a key and paying the $250.

how to open ?? would mean to me the question asked, I stated all I did. Would hitting the trunk release button open it, I used a 6' long tool and was 2" short of reaching the drivers side trunk button.

it may or may not open the trunk, it depends what lock mode the car is in.
a tow truck driver will have professional tools and be able to hit the button and at the very least get you into the cabin.

I got into the car and pulled out the trunk button and jumped it with 12v and the trunk opened, please send me the $26 back, I will not charge you for this tip.
