Can anyone add info on key fobs?

This FAQ is great - as a new M5 owner, I'm getting a lot of mileage out of it.

One thing that might be nice to add is a FAQ on keys. I need to replace a key FOB and would also like a valet key. A discussion/info on the dealer costs, programming process and whether 3rd party keys can be purchased more economically would be helpful.

Thanks for this great resource!

Inspection 1 and 2

Does anybody have a pdf copy they can share re: Inspection 1 and 2 maintenance service?

I posted this on the M6board and it appears no one has a copy.

Thanks in advance.

Does anybody have any information regarding the difference between years (2006 vs. 2008?) or are they all the same? Just seeing if there was any benefit to getting a newer car (updated headlamps, tail lights, model options, etc etc).

Thanks much!

Update on this:

There is no Inspection 1 or Inspection 2 on E63 M6 / newer BMW's

BMW now calls it "Condition Based service".
Basically parts will be replaced when they wear out as indicated by the maintenance screen.
