thank you for your attention to the rating requirement.

unfortunately keys cannot be programmed, they are permanently programmed to the car when the are manufactured. not even a dealer can reprogram a key.

,

if the key cannot start the car then it is faulty and will need to be replaced. a working key can only be purchased from a BMW dealer, you will need to show proof of ownership/identity before they order a new one. Typically about $200-$250
