The car is not starting because there is a problem with the key. You just replaced a perfectly working starter! Diagnose before throwing money into changing parts out.

Absolutely correct, if the key wont charge get a new batt put in it, then you will find all will work.

I must have misunderstood your original post. The way you typed it, it looks like you tried to replace the starter yourself when the car wouldn't start up. Was this a BMW dealership you bought the car from? If so, was it a CPO?

That sure is nice to have all that fixed for free!

What about the passenger side rear window not automatically rolling up. Is that working again?

Here is the website for the vehicle's users manuals:
E46 Manuals | The Web Page of Kristopher Linquist

You can also get user manuals from eBay, but it seems like your dealer may get you a copy of the manuals, since they are willing to replace a starter and everything for you for free.

Good luck.
