That is no longer true. You don't have to sacrifice a key for the remote start anymore. I was checking with a place called AutoSound here near Dallas because I bought a biometric fingerprint car security system and it has a autostart feature with an additional remote. I looked online and found the method where a key needs to be used and the guy at the shop said that used to be true but now they no longer use that and they have a oem bypass device. He said he has installed remote start devices on bmw's and the new method is safer because the key method pretty much disabled the EWS since it was always in the car. I would contact a decent stereo installer and see if they can suggest something that works for your car.
