Best place to get a new key

Where is the best place to get a new key fob? My chip on the key has died. Can I just replace the chip and reprogram it? The key fob still unlocks doors. Just don't start the car.

Independent fogs lights

I notice that when ever I turn on the fog lights, my headlights turn on also. Is there an easy way to set it up so I can turn on fog lights independent of the rest of the system?

Its a 2002 530i. The slippage is very minor. Probably not noticeable to someone else. Seems like engine revs up a little more before engaging and then its is a harder shift into first gear.
