I had this problem in my older e92, I think if you glovebox is locked you can't open the trunk or SOMETHING like that, it has to do with the car being in "valet mode" I remember it was a simple fix though, so simple I don't even remember what the problem was... but is your glovebox locked?

In the U.S. there is a valet switch in the glovebox at the upper left side to lock the trunk so the remote or key will not allow it to open.

There is a small button with a picture of the car with the trunk lid open above the hood release handle.
