    The foolproof way is to order a new key from the dealer. You will need to demonstrate to them that you are indeed the owner of the bike. They submit the order to one of BMW's key cutting facilities...

    What can the OP "demand" from BMW in terms resolving this problem? Can he demand a new motor, that particular parts be replaced, an early valve adjustment? Or, must the OP accept only what BMW...

    Wouldn't the OP's dealer be pleased to replace the sensor IF they knew they'd be paid by BMW to do it? In this case the dealer evidently thinks BMW will not pay for the replacement, and very...

    The extended warranties offered by BMW dealers are not BMW warranties. And you may buy such a warranty from a non-BMW dealer or even directly from the warranty company in some cases.

    That aftermarket seat appears to be quite low, as though it was built for a shorter rider. If that doesn't really suit you, the dealer probably has a used OE seat around.
