Price of a replacement ignition key

Right, my dozy girlfriend has managed to lose her key for the MINI

Does anyone have any experience of getting a replacement ordered, does it take long? I assume they need the car to program the new key to it. Also how much is it likely to cost HER?

I think your g/f will be looking at around 50 upwards depending where in the country you are!

My dealership in Watford quote 80 per replacement key!

i was quoted around 80 for a remote key and some1 on here posted a couple of days ago he got a non remote key for around 17

you need to go to your dealer with your V5 (logbook) and proof of ID - when ordered it takes a couple of days as the key comes pre cut + programmed to your car

Gen 1/Mk1 Mini remote key will be about 100-150 today for the remote key and about 50 for a non-remote spare. The 1st Gen remote needs programming to the car which adds a min. half hour labour charge. You need your V5 reg document to prove ownership at Mini dealer before they will order in key from BMW.

However 2nd Gen/Mk2 Mini remote key is ordered for the specific car (to chassis number) so the code will be stored on BMW's system, the remote will have the code programmed before it is dispached to the dealers, just like the key part is pre-cut to the car before the dealer gets it
