I own a 2003 Mini Cooper Metallic Gold black roof with a sun & moon roof.
I shipped it to Honolulu when I relocated from Calgary Alberta Canada
I have 2 keys with remote unlock and they are both at this point because of the leather over time over the buttons deteriorating the remotes no longer function, I am told I have to buy a new key/remote from a Mini dealership only if I want a new remote lock & unlock? which is a couple 3 hundred dollars so my brother says buy one off the internet...I do amazon.com...receive it and its an empty shell with a blank key attached, made a few phone calls & here I am.
can anyone advise me on how I can either repair the two remote's I have or buy a new one with out going through Mini?
