Boston area key fob replacement

Hi guys,

I'm back in the e90 family with a recent purchase (335is). The vehicle came with only one fob (comfort access) and I was looking for recommendations for the best price for OEM replacements in the Boston area.

Thanks in advance.

Dealership?

I called a few places and everyone said they don't touch BMW keys.

Try calling X Locksmith out of Watertown. I haven't used him but I saw reviews that claim he has done fobs for other german cars.

Thanks for some responses but I have to apologize for the confusion. I am looking for info on which dealer in the Boston area will offer a new comfort access key fob for my car at the lowest price. I read that their prices can differ by $hundreds and didn't want to call them all to figure it out.

Thanks for any help.

I may be able to get you a new key for about $150. PM me your VIN number unless you found something cheaper then $150.

Just looking at dealers now, thanks. I have Comfort Access and want a fully functioning fob. Only dealers (or a very sophisticated Indy) can set the CAS module correctly to ensure only 2 of the factory ID's will be in use.
