Updated February 21, 2017

BMW replacement car keys can be ordered from an authorised BMW service centre by the registered owner of the car. For security reasons, the owner must appear in person, with current car registration and identification and the names on all paperwork must match. BMW car keys are laser cut at the factory according to their VIN number and sent to the dealership in about two working days.

Call the nearest service centre to get a price quote for a new key. Tell them you need to replace a lost BMW key.

Appear in person at the BMW service centre and bring original vehicle title, current vehicle registration, your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number), driving licence and payment for the replacement key.
