First posting from a newbie (although I've lurked for a little while).
BMW 520i 1995. I've lost my immobiliser key fob so can't start the car. I can get in with the key but the alarm goes off. I still have the spare fob but that doesn't work either, even with new batteries in it. The little red LED doesn't light so I'm assuming it's kaputt. What are my options?
Can I get a new non-BMW immoboliser system fitted?
Can I simply bypass/remove the BMW system?
Do I have to fork out £150 on a car recovery vehicle to take it to a BMW dealer who will charge another £150 for a new fob plus an additional £200 to programme it? I can't be the first person to find himself in this position?
Finally, can anyone recommend someone mobile who could do the work in the south east London area?
