Hello and welcome to just answer and allowing me to assist you. sorry to hear that but your not the only one nor be the last one to do that and after this experience you will find the importance of always carrying a spare key to at least get you in. I as well been in this position and after I now carry a key in my wallet to open the doors.yes you can butcher your paint and weather strips trying the coat hanger thing but if it's like mine Toyota it won't work because of the anti theft lock out. so take my advice and call AAA auto club they have special tools that won't mark your beautiful car and open it in short time. Hope this makes your decision better and if you require further help I'll be happy to do so. I was charged $80.00 for the sevice just to let you know but that's way up here in Canada.good luck.
