locksmith? will make one but it wont be fancy and wont be anythign special. the lgiht unit can be replaced fr $20. my bulb is broke. u may just need a battery...that cud cost u 99 cents.
i think the dealer is the only play...unless u find say a real bmw blank on ebay and then take that to the locksmith and ask him to cut it...which i think they rnt allowed to do for sum made up reason i have in my head...call a locksmith!
I had the same deal when I bought my 94 325i...only one key (what do these people do with the others?). Got a new one made (actually they order it from like New Jersey) from the dealer...around $28 for the non-lighted key. I also snooped around my car and found out that it had the alarm system installed, so I went on e-bay and bought a 3-button key fob that was for my year and...now I can remotely lock and unlock the car.
You can find some locksmiths that can make a new key for you (it needs to be laser cut). They often use softer metal (like brass) for the keys whereas the dealer used steel or something harder (I don't remember the exact metal). Given this is a specialty key, you won't be able to go to the hardware store, probably best and easiest to go to the dealer.
