    Cheapest way.

    Phone the dealer and find out which is the cheapest glass window they have in stock.

    Break that one. Not joking.

    Have called tuffstuff. Now my friends will have to get me another iced cappuccino while I sit under a shady tree and wait for the locksmith.

    Ah, the wire trick. Works like a charm with certain cars.

    They use a little bag that they slide between the window frame on the door and the pillar then inflate to create a gap. Push the wire through and hook the lock button by the door handle and pull to unlock it. Easy peasy. Just do not open the door with the bag still inflated as it will break the window apparently.

    It does, but somehow it knows the key is inside and will not unlock.

    Now why does it know the key is inside and do not lock itself. These computors have a mind of their own. Serious.

    My Suzuki Swift won't let you lock the door with the outside door button if the keys are inside the car.

    When they jack open the door, the door and window is under tension. If you open the door whilst under that tension, the window can definitely crack or shatter.
    Think about how as a kid, you would hold the door closed whilst someone pulls on it... then you let go
