Unfortunately, seeing the chip will not help you.

Key coding is not a simple process. It takes coding of the car/Key for it to work. You can't just buy a fob.

Have a look on the BMWcoding.com forum and you'll see a fair amount of information there on key programing.

I changed a BMW key due to the fact the key had worn down and would not turn in the lock. I found a company that could cut the key as it is specialised process, and then removed the chip from the old key and put it into the new one. Took a bit of messing about but it eventually did work, You have to remember that BMW has a limit on programming new keys, I think it is 4 or 6 before you have to buy a new module....., not including the locks......
