Important:

Most BMW, as well as other high-end vehicles made in the US and abroad after 2018 are equipped with high-security key features, which only some locksmiths can cut and program as most automotive locksmiths don’t carry the necessary equipment to make a replacement key and/or program the key. Therefore, before calling for service, make sure you provide the VIN so the locksmiths can check if they can cut you a replacement key.

In addition, some key blanks may not be available here for certain years. If this is the case, most chances are the dealer is your only option, as there are no aftermarket keys and/or no available coding machine for locksmiths to cut and program this key.

In addition, ask if you can come and pick up the key or the car has to be present. With older models, codes may not be available and therefore on-site service will be required to make a new key.

Alternatively, you can tow the car to the locksmith shop but that would be more expensive.

Finally, make sure you can show ownership of the car by having the necessary documents. The title, ID, insurance card, etc.

In addition, it depends on where you get a key replacement. The dealer, automotive locksmith or get it online.

 

Important:

Because most locksmiths don’t carry the necessary equipment and keys to make BMW keys, the dealer might be your only option and they charge accordingly. In addition, most chances you will have to tow the car there to program the new key or remote and therefore the total price is even higher.

Furthermore, consider that if you are looking to have a locksmith come out and make you a new key outside regular business hours, the price may go up as well.

Finally, in case your ignition cylinder was changed before (usually with older cars), that probably means that the code for the key may not be useful and the key will have to be either cut manually by a locksmith or to change the ignition again which in this case the dealer can’t be of help.
