    Your owners manual has a section about the emergency unlock procedure...look at emergency operation in the right column at this link: http://luuk.xs4all.nl/bmwboeken/bmwe34manual/pg7.jpg

    Basically, you lift and hold up the passenger door handle while (at the same time) turning the key to the emergency unlock position. Sometimes you may have to "pump" the handle and exert more than normal pressure to get the key past it's normal detent. This is because you have lost the "electrical" assist. If you are unsucessful on the passenger side....then try the drivers side...but remember the driver's lock goes in the opposite direction of the image below.
