Hello all,

I had stopped in to the local dealer last week in attempt to have a VIN cut valet key ordered for my rig. Unfortunately the poor fellow behind the keyboard was unable to come up with any number to put the order through. Does anyone know if there is a specific part number associated with the “fob-less” valet key? Or do I simply ask them to “make a key” since the fob versions are supposedly unobtainium here in the States now?

Gene- I called my local dealer and spoke to the parts manager. At his request, I PDFd him a copy of my registration and my driver's license to prove I owned my P38. He then looked up my lock bar code per my VIN number. He called me and gave me the number for my records. From the Lock Bar Code, he cut me two valet keys and sent them to me-$30 each.

My dealer is in Ashville

Microcat doesn't even show the valet key, just the fobs but as Mark says, it should be possible to cut them from the lock bar code.

The key blank is the same as the E39 BMW - I have a few sets of Silca non-remote blank keys and have cut one set for our other RR.

I have some spare - I'll get the Silca code off it this evening.

Thanks for the help folks. I will inquire for more details next time I head over to the dealer.

That's kind of odd. We didn't have a local stealer back in 2010 when I wanted to order a key so I called the one down in Tulsa. I got the same thing about mailing or faxing my registration, drivers license and VIN but was told they had to call LR in New York to get the Key Code. Price was the same as I recall.
