First off, welcome to the Montego Blue club! Secondly, I had my one of my keys re-bodied with the Master Locksmith, prompt service but didn’t come with a BMW badge so I bought one off eBay.

Thank you - definitely a great club to be a part of! Two and a half weeks in and I'm still stealing any opportunity I can get to look at the cardxh wrote: ↑Fri Nov 25, 2022 12:26 amFirst off, welcome to the Montego Blue club!

So the good news is that I'm pretty sure I've solved the remote central locking issue - looks like it probably was a dead key battery, I sent off one of the keys, and it came back and worked right away once I'd recoded it.
Also pretty pleased with the result. In the end I actually ended up taking a chance on remotefobcentre.com and went for a key repair in a new case:

Working perfectly so far, and looks pretty close to a genuine BMW key... the logo used is a bit of a different logo, but you have to look pretty hard to notice differences, pretty happy with it:
Speedy service too, had the key back a couple of days after sending it off! Think I'll be sending the other key off to them soon now that I've got a working one back.
