    1250 Spare Key

    Does anyone know how much a spare key fob is for a 1250 ?
    Was thinking of getting one

    When I picked up my 1200GSA I asked if I got 2 keys with it and he chuckled like only a BMW salesman can and said they were circa £250 for a replacement.

    If it’s just for your luggage, so no transponder or whatever it is there are plenty of places to get them, I bought two for mine using key 2 code.

    On the spare plastic key there is a white label with a barcode on it, there is also above that is a single letter followed by a four digit code. That is the code you need.

    I’ve no idea how long it’s taking in the present situation, but mine were a couple of days.

    I think I paid £14.99

    I assume you are talking about the flick key? I bought a spare for luggage etc as the flick key is pretty flimsy.

    Out of interest, why do you want a spare flick key? I carry the plastic emergency key in my wallet which has the transponder in it in case I lose the flick key.

    Agreed, but that’s normally to allow for cars being used by more than one person I suspect. Most bikes only have one rider, aka a single fob and an emergency key.

    £98 for my 1250RT, which they couldn't get to work as it needs programming. So I gave it back and got my money back

    I'm in the same situation as you njw1967 and have just bought a used fob for £35 from a fellow tosser. The blade can be purchased from the BMW stealer for £12 and comes with two pins (one spare) to enable you to replace the blade in the fob. Dealer quoted me £20-25 for recoding, so overall cost £70 ish. Perhaps you could do similar and place a wanted ad on here.
