I believe this can only be done by BMW service :dunno:

That seems too bad. I'm sure the dealer will rub me or just presuade me to buy a new remote from them. :cry:

you can't buy a used remote and use it with your car. the memory in the remove it write-once type memory and can't be over-written again.

The remotes are matched to the vehicle, you need a new one, you cant use one from another car.
