Once you pop the hood by pulling the hood release on the inside of the car stand in front of the car. At the edge of the grille on the right you'll see a small black lever sticking out slightly. Pull up on it. This will release the secondary latch so you can raise the hood. HTH. -Jim

Js is right, but some added info....It's tricky sometimes, as just not pulling up on the outside lever works, you also have to pull out or towards you as your pulling up to release the latch holding the hood down.

You could also go to a BMW dealer and ask them. Just a thought. Shouldn't cost you more than $75.00 for the consult. Just kidding.
