Mein Auto: X5 5.0i
replacement key

My wife cannot locate her key to our 2012 5.0i. The dealer says $315.

In one week we start a trip that will cover over 3K miles. What options should I explore besides tearing up the house which is likely where the key has been lost?

1. Shop around: http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...&siteid=214672

2. Tear the house apart.

3. Get your money's worth out of the $315.


Pick one....

You need two if you are leasing...

My daughter (age two) lost my wife's key to our '08 X5. It was an expensive lesson.

My dealer negotiated the replacement cost with me. Try that.

Two keys needed- leasing or trade-in will be effected. My new X3 came with just one, as someone at the dealer lost the other one prior to my buying it. They ordered and provided a new key- so if it makes you feel better even dealers lose them!
