Check out this link, go towards the bottom, looks like you can somehow get into the trunk without drilling. http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum/showthread.php?t=667435

Tom is has led you in the right direction with the link. Since this in a conv the top does have to be intalized in order for the trunk to open. If the conv top compartment is open or thinks its open it will lock the trunk from opening. This would be caused by a bad microswitch I have seen this in the dealer alot I have also seen the SIB (service information bulletin that tom gave you a link to as well cause an issue. If anything try pushing down on the conv top lid while trying to open the trunk it may trigger the bad microswitch enough to unlock the trunk. Hope this helps.
