Its $130 for another remote key. Also if you lost it and think theres a chance someone will figureout its yours and steal the car you might want to get new locks.

I got a new key for $150. BMW is the only place to get a key. BMW keys are only cut in New Jersey in Germany.

150 is not bad ... there's a dealership here wanted to charge me Cdn 500 (~USD 340) for it (dont remember the exact price ... just high !!!) Do you think I can request the US dealership to get me an extra key and send it to me by mail ??

I think you have to show up in person at the dealership, with appropriate documentation, to prove that you own the car... Otherwise, I could pull a VIN off a nice M3 down the street, order a key, and be on my merry way...

You need your drivers license and registration.

Call a dealership in the US to see if they will let you fax this documentation to them.

I hate how much they charge! :banghead:

My friend broke my plastic wallet key, and they wanted to charge me $45 for it. I said, no thanks. Went back 2 weeks later to pick up some reflectors to have painted, and they had lost the paperwork for the key and gave it to me for free.
