Haha:thumbup:

I know for a fact that BMW keys aren't that cheap--I don't know the process of having one cut without an original to cut from, though.

well i have done this recently when mine lost its code.

go to the dealership and take proof of ownership of the car have the vin number and the registration if you dont take the log book, the cost for me was £30.01 that was for a master key that does it all start car etc, bmw make 10 keys when the car is new you will have had at least 4 of them so if the other 6 havent been used its very simple, the key took 2 days to arrive and worked fine.

hope this helps bob

and remember to quote ''+ 4'' which means you get a better discount as the car is more than 4 years old
Tip worth remembering if ever I lose my keys. You key, however, must be an ordinary key because I recall that the key to our E39 had buttons you pressed to open/close the doors. A replacement for this was almost 100 pounds!

I didn't think you could get them from anyone but a stealer buddy....
If you have the key codes and proof of ownwership, you can here. I did, and was like $150.00 cheaper

You could get it from a lock smith ofcourse. If he has an immoblizer scantool. He can pull out the security code from youre car and put it on the new key.

But, I would rather get a BMW ORIGINAL laser-cut key and keep my mind in peace. Although Ive seen the scantool trick being done before, I just prefer original over it.

That was my 0.02$ ! Good luck !

Thats fair, but when I was looking, I made some enquiries, and what happens here is you order the key from the stealer, they then go to a particular locksmith and get the key cut and scanned and take it back to the dealership and give it to you.

The difference in cost is (I just looked at the quote and reciept) is the stealer wanted $210.00 and the locksmith charged $35.00 for cutting and scanning.
