Locked out of my car

Last night, everything was fine, drove down to a friends house and locked the car when I got out, about an hour later tried to get in, and remote functions arnt working. Strange oh well ill just insert the key and get in that way, absolutely nothing, my car locked me out completely. I even went home and got all my spares, and nothing. The car is on a steep incline and lowered so towers wont tow it, any suggestions?

You are familiar with the emergency unlocking procedure in the event of a total electrical failure, correct?

Download the Owner's Manual from the BMW NA web site ... In the 2003 manual the instructions for manual locking/unlocking are on page 27. This should work, even with a dead battery.

Just like with the old E30's. Late 80's when they put the central locking system in....

The procedure didn't work at all, had it towed to the dealership (that was a chore in itself) and the dealer took 2 days to figure out how to get in. At any rate, turns out that it was a blown fuse so the alarm was triggered and couldn't be untriggered until the fuse was replaced..... Apparently the fuel door actuator can cause the fuse to blow so I had it replaced, something around 250 for the job. Definitely a big inconvience, But now I have my car back, another dent showed up somehow tho....
