what is wrong?

when i bring the trunk lid down, it doesn't sound like if the "clasp" like-thing is latching on to the piece of metal as it is suppose too. since the car isn't properly "close" i can't even close the doors. :

is this a repair BMW does or can I do it myself?

I have not heard of this happening, but if I understand it right it sounds like the trunk latch is just stuck open and not connecting when you try to close the trunk. I would try to lubricate it and jiggle it as much as possible to see if that did anything. I would also call a couple of local places that work on BMWs and see what they say.

Too many dead hookers in your trunk. Remove one and try again.

Read about my Frankenmotor Project and see how an M50 becomes an S50!!!

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

not sure if it's a lubrication problem since it moves just fine when i use a screw driver to lock it from the outside.

one funny thing i noticed, i'm not able to put my key into the trunk lid button.... ?
