    Replacement Key 2019 - seeking options

    I searched but found all the replacement key posts were from 2014 and earlier. I tried other searches but was unsuccessful as my choice of words yielded too many posts (I even picked "title only"). So, Sorry in advance if this has been beat to death.

    What are our options for getting a new key these days? Dealer quoted $350. I only have one and need another.

    The fob batteries charge when in the ignition. Apparently the batteries are rarely a problem. Fob repair service is available here: www.bmwgm5.com
