In Reply to: Re: just bought 740il need spare rim and master ke posted by Rich on March 16, 2000 at 10:34:55:

: : : love this car but the spare rim is wrong size, any advice on where to get a decent rim other than from a dealer and how I can get a master key without paying a ridiculous $140 that a local dealer quoted me? also does this key set an internal alarm on the car and what else does this key do? thanks for the help

: : My understanding on the key is that it contains an internal chip that is integral to the anti-theft system. I am not aware of any third-party sources for the master keys.

: does this key open the locks with a remote button?? or do you have to turn the key in the lock to lock the door?? thanks for the help

There are three types of keys -- the master key has the remote built in for the door and trunk. The valet key is a key only with no remote and works for the driver's door lock only. The "spare" key is a wallet size key that has a minimal size head.
