In order to get a new key for your car.
You have to have:
1) the title to the car
2) proof of drivers licence (the person's name on the title has to be present with the valid DL to make sure identification is true)
3) Money to pay for the key
The title has ALL the information, VIN, make, model, color, etc. So...to my knowledge that's all you have to have.
BUT, just a random fact. You can only have a total of 10 keys (including your valet) made.
It varries depending on the make and model. An X5 key was $180. I almost had to buy one. I got lucky. But I'm guessing around $100-$200.
