If your Beemer has a "smart key" (with RFID chip in it) you will likely be stuck going to the stealership. The keys can be duplicated, but not created. In other words, if you have one set they can make you copies, but if you have none, they have nothing to work from.

With these autos (I work for a dealership) it is important to know the year. Some don't even have a key. Just a fob that has to be in the car or your pocket will make it work. Other styles have the fob that inserts in a slot. Some of the older models have an actual key that is cut with a router looking device.
Take your VIN to the dealer with you and they can order a key for you - bring your check book!

I think you will find that BMW is one of the models you need to take the whole car to the dealership if you do not have any key.

We were in Florence, SC about 12-14 years ago when she lost her keys for her Rental 200X Mercury or something like that. We called a locksmith and he said we would have to have the dealer send a code to the local dealer.

For some reason, that was not easy to do (time constraints). Anyway, after 3 days of messing around, she found the keys in a small pocket in her purse.

Ford keeps a record of key codes for 10 years and it seems like it just depends on the particular dealership if they will share that information with you.

Hine sight is a great thing.

The A.A.A.s used to make copy's in a plastic card for it's members that you could put in you wallet and I still have mine.
What would be a good idea is to have an extra set of keys to be able to leave a set of car keys in say your R.V. and leave a set of R.V. keys in you car someplace.
I did this after I had locked my self out of my M.H. and had to make a 80 mile round trip to pick up the extra key's that were home.
Just a thought

I guess I'm old school, but I really like it when I have to stick my key in an ignition switch ON THE DASHBOARD and turn it before it comes to life.
