Lost My Keys... :(


Recommended Posts

I recently had a car donated to my program without a key.  It was a late 90's Honda.  I brought the proof of ownership to the dealer and they made me one in about 10 minutes, about 7 bucks.  And it works perfectly!


Check with your BMW dealer before you do anything drastic.  The 40 plus years old angle could present a challenge, but it is worth a shot.  You never know. 


Locksmith may be able to help you out also.  Keep us posted.


And, if it works..... get TWO keys made!  ;)

 what, you never had a couple of extra sets made ??


 way back in 1976 I was in Fresno in July with no spare set.  I used the ignition key as a pry bar ..... and at noon it broke into 2 pieces !!  I got lucky and found a key shop only 1 mile away.  A long hot walk.  The guy was able to make one.  Another long hot walk.  The new key worked.  I drove back and had the guy make me 2 sets (ignition and trunk).


 I still have the original ignition key ...... with only 1-1/2 years of wear it is like new, except it is (still) in 2 pieces.






p.s.  and yes, I keep a spare set hidden on the car, just in case .......
