    I have had this problem on my '97 528i for over a month now but it has gotten to the point where I can't take it anymore. The problem is my car would keep forgetting my keyfob every few days. The car doesn't respond to any of the buttons that I press on the keyfob and I have to go back to...

    After doing a lot of repairs to my 2007 328xi (sedan), it seems I have misplaced my only key fob, ugghhhhh.

    Hello all! I'm sure this is on the forum somewhere but I live in Northern California and I have a 2011 329i xDrive M Sport Coupe.

    All, Just watched the video below and wanted to do the same on my Keyfob. My keyfob was not working for arming/disarming the X3. I know there are many posts around about doing this but on my case, I would like to point out that the problem relied on a solder point. The negative solder point...

    Looking to get another transponder/ keyless entry key for my 540i. I'm looking for a blank as my local hardware store can cut it for me. Anyone have any leads or links? I've tried Ebay and haven't had a whole lot of luck so far.

    I ordered a brand new key from BMW and they tried to program it but it wouldn't program. They told me they would have to look at it to see whats wrong. Anyone else have this issue and how much did it cost to fix? I want to get an idea before I take it in and end up with a $3,000 bill
