Question about 2003 BMW Z4
After unlocking with key. The door wont open.
Sometimes the connection behind the door panel causes this problem. It is a wire that fits into a hole on the inside of the door handle. Be careful when you pop the door panel off. Use the tool, which is a flat thin pry bar. The wire looks like a thick metal coat hanger and fits in the hole.

looks like you will need a drivers door lock actuator (contains the latch)if the door will not unlock with the remote either.the lock cylinder usually will fail since you had to use it everytime to unlock the door. the lock cylinder is vin specific so expect a delay when its ordered from the dealership.i would probably expect around $800 for the complete repair, kinda pricey but the dealership will go out of its way to retain a customer.

SOURCE: Turning off airbag
all you have to do is open your passenger door and on the dash by the ac, there is a little hole where you can insert your car key and turn in where it will then turn the passenger airbag off. I have never had to remove anything to turn it off, all you have to do is turn in with your key!!!

SOURCE: Central Locking not working
I'm running a E34 Tds Touring with a similar problem, my rear doors and tailgate have dropped of the central locking circuit.
I have been told it is the Central locking Module a large black box under the dash that is faulty, apparently a common problem.
Hope this points you in the right direction,
Please remember to rate my effort!

insert the key into the drivers side or passender side front door, twist the key and pull open on the handle at the same time and the door will open. It might take a few times to get it, but this does work, source BMW AG Munich.

SOURCE: headlight bulb replacement
bulb, igniter, or module, in order of likelihood and cost.
My bulb was out, so had a bulb put in, but still out. Had an off-duty BMW tech do it.
HOWEVER, if you have the HID Xenon headlight option, you can get shocked to death (yes, death) if you touch the wrong things together.
It's in the owner's manual -- turn wheels in or out, on front inside of wheel well is a cover that has small screws holding it in. The there's a plastic cove that snaps off and, walla, you're at the back of the light. It just twists in and out.
Don't touch the new bulb (particularly if it's a Xenon).
I'd pay to get it done.
