Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Unfortunately the only way to gain access inside the vehicle is with a new key or a AAA company to come out and use their slim jim tools to open the door.In some cases on some models the drivers door has a lock cylinder and a new key blade can be obtained from a dealer but most of the time the dealer has to order this in for you unfortunately.Usually they can do this over night if not ordered to late in the day.

The only other option besides obtaining a new key from a dealer is a AAA company with their slim jim tool.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete

Thank you Pete I'm in Penrith, and I've rang locksmiths and no one can get into a bmw any other suggestions?

Your welcome.

Unfortunately these are the only options here on this.Either a AAA company or lock smith can try and use their slim jim tools to unlock and access the inside of the vehicle or a new key obtained from a dealer.BMW as well as a few other manufacturers are set up this way unfortunately.

Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here as this is how I receive credit for my time.

Thanks Pete
