Dark Silver Problems with the key fobs

Both of the key fobs on my 2010 mini have been intermittently working, I have changed the batteries in both keys to no avail. They will work for a day and then stop for many days, or work for a few hours and then stop working. Any ideas on how to trouble shoot this before I have to take it to the mini dealer??

Did you resolve this please? Got a similar issue on a 14 reg cooper S
Some days the fobs work other days it takes many presses for the car to 'wake up' and unlock. Both fobs affected, batteries have been changed.

If both keys fail at the same time but intermittently it must be the car and not the keys.
