Lock the car w/the keyfob. Then to get out, you press and HOLD the central unlock button on the dash while you pull the interior door handle to unlock.
I cannot test at the moment (have CA which won't let you lock yourself inside, and no one is home at the moment to assist). Anyone want to give it a try?
Yes there is usually a 2 step way to getting out of the vehicle when it is locked by a remote control. In my e46, to get out of the car when it was locked by the remote, you have to first push the unlock/lock button, then pull the door handles twice and wa-la. magic! im sure it is the same mechanism in the e90 too.
