    I'm pretty sure if you go to program a fob, the original list of "cleared" fobs is wiped, and only the fobs used in the next sync procedure will work.
    With the replacement, gather all other fobs and you can start the sync.

    That's ok to stop the central locking but the immobiliser would need the stolen key removed, but the key would still work the lock and if the robbing scum can't get the car chances are they may smash it up

    OK, your key has 3 parts to it, one is the mechanical key if fitted, which is the normal key blade you'd put into the door, that will remain able to open the doors, but the alarm will go off.

    The second part is the remote unlocking, and when a new key/fob is added, the car is told to forget all the remotes linked to it, and just respond to whichever ones are activated in the couple of minutes whilst adding new fobs.

    The final part is the EWS, which is a microchip inside the key that stop the immobiliser. Alarm makes the noises and flashes the lights, the immobiliser stops the engine from starting.



    The first part - an actual key blade going missing will be awkward, it will be able to open a door but the alarm will go off.
    The second part will be sorted when a new fob is added, and the missing one won't be able to remote unlock the car.
    The third and final part can be sorted in diagnostics, and the immobiliser chip can be barred from the system.

    If a new key is ordered and set up by BMW or a garage that has good BMW kit, all that will remain is the possibility of the doors being opened and the alarm going off. The car won't be able to be driven away, or the alarm deactivated/doors opened by the remote.
