E82 / E87 / E88 / F20 1 Series (2008 - 2014)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by a naturaly aspirated inline 6 in the 128 or the turbo twin power inline 6 rocket sled 135.

Key fob battery help

I drive a 1 series, 62 reg sport. My key needs a new battery, I've been to 3 places today and had different answers and no help. Some told me the key needs re programming by a BMW dealership once the battery is replaced before the fob will work again, whereas a BMW 'specialist' told me this isn't true. Neither had the battery in stock and Halfords told me they won't touch BMWs. Does anyone know the actual answer? Thank you

Rechargeable or replaceable? CR2032 replaceable, replace it and done. Rechargeable is problematic.
