One quick question slightly away from original thread........If all info is stored on the key, which is read by BMW key slot at the dealer.....what happens if you only use one key?

I think what sums up the video clip is the guy in the driving seat! Young twenty something wearing his cap back to front.......Ashok, do you really want that image?

Looking at this from another angle: What damage was incurred to result in the car being written off?
