awww, Uhm, you could look for a non programed key fob at Ebay or at other sites and have your dealership program it for you, might cost 150-250 including the key

or

you could purchase the key and let the dealer program it for you which will run you about 400-500$~

I'll guess the cost for you if you pay me $10.

For free I'll tell you exactly instead of guessing.

The dealer cost is roughly $180 for the 4 button remote with the key. If you have comfort access there is no need to have the dealer program the new one, it will come from BMW ready to go.

The eBay method doesn't work unfortunately, at least to my knowledge of the newer 315mhz remotes it won't.
