And if you have an inside trunk release (and maybe fuel door opener), you wanna use the main key to lock those too.

Odd question, but which one is the vallet key? When I bought my e36, I only got 3 keys and I'm not sure if I got that one of not.

Anyone have a screen shot of the keys with labels? :P

The valet key is the simplest one. You can just try the trunk or glove box locks; it's the key that won't open those.

if you want to protect your subs get a roll of duct tape and a split open cardboard box cut the box to the shape of the inside of your boot and just tape it up in front of your subs like a false back to your boot, the cardboard and tape will seal up the part of your boot that your subs are in stopping any sanding dust or crap getting in there and no one will be able to see what you have in there
! And you really do want then to be able to get in there you don’t want to get those heinous lines around your doors trunk etc! Why you not getting jams done if you don’t mind me asking?
