Do you have Comfort Access? If so, when your car was made, BMW coded approx. 10 remotes for your car so when one is lost, the replacement must be ordered by VIN. Once those initial remotes are gone, it requires a computer replacement to get a new remote to work.

Even if you do not have CA, you should only get a remote from BMW but shop different dealers, some will give better pricing than others.
