Replacement key question

My puppy ate one of the keys to my 2002 540. It still works to start the car but all of the remote functions are lost. I still have the other original key but don't want to have just one.

Is it possible to get a replacement key from the dealer? I seem to remember them telling me the only other key(s) are in Germany but maybe I'm not remembering accurately.

Yes, the dealer is the only place to get a fully-functional key.

It is rumored, however, that there is one guy who can clone your key. Try this guy: http://www.bimmerforums.com/forum/sh...-Key-for-Cheap
