No matter how much you enjoy so many of the cool, techno and safety gadgets that enhance your later model BMW, be aware that in some instances, what used to be a simple situation, can become a little more challenging for you as a consumer.
Take your keys, for example. Due to the rolling security code feature, you cannot just go to your local locksmith, and get a key re-made. Of course, one never wants to lose a key, (or worse yet, both keys), however, if that becomes the case your specialty shop or dealership will take extra steps to be sure that the key is being remade for the registered owner of the vehicle. (Great news)! But, the entire process of getting those keys, could take a few days minimum, (Not so good news). The cost….well, that depends on whether the glass is half full or half empty. Maybe we should say the wallet is half full or half empty?
Hold on to those keys!
