key should do locking (bmw symbol in centre of key), unlock on one button and open boot on the other button. Interior lights come on when you press unlock, even if its unlocked - nice on dark winer evenings I find E39 you have is a great model - had mins 8 months and lovin it!

Yes, you have an E39. For best prices, go to auto parts world. For cool aftermarket stuff and hard to find stuff, go to Bavarian Auto or AutohausAZ. Let me know if you need an alternator or LHS tie rod.
