When I had to get one for my F10 a year or so ago, all my searching came up that you can only get one from a BMW Dealer. Locksmith or mail order can't do it. There's no getting around the $300-$400 dealer unless you live in California, which has a special legal deal. Good luck.

Try to shop around.

I got my 2nd fob at a indy shop for $250CAD in Toronto, Canada (price included physical key cutting and programming for comfort access). BMW Dealership wanted $660CAD for this

Maybe in Europe, not so much in the U.S.
