BMW rotors are not known for lasting very much more than 30-45k miles. When the brakes are inspected, they measure the pads using a special tool threw the outer brake pad. Min spec is 3mm. When the pads are replaced, they measure the thickness of the rotors. The rotor spec is stamped on the rotor. if they are under that spec, they recommend replacing them as well. Next time you bring it in for service, just ask them to measure the rotor thinkness, (its not a huge task, all they have to do is take the wheels off). But more often than not, the rotors wear just as fast as the pads.

There are several suggestions out there on how to retrieve BMW keys from the trunk. Many of the ways I tried failed, and it takes 2 to 3 days to get a new key made up. In the coupe there is the center piece in the back seat that folds down. Then on the back wall there is material that will fold down that is held up with Velcro. Behind that you will find a rubber insulation that is mostly cut and looks like a door, but not all the way. Carefully cut the rubber to remove the piece. Now you will find a metal wall, but there is a large piece that is tack welded on. I got turned around and kicked it with the bottom of my foot and got 3 sides loose. Then a softball bat knocked the final side loose. Pull that out and trash it, the final barrier is the insulation that is held in place with plastic clips that can just be pushed down. After that you can a pretty large hole to work through and get the keys. Just put everything back in place other than the metal plate and you will never know anything was done.

If the fuel filter has been replaced, then maybe these are other reasons:
1. intake camshaft sensor (known to go bad on BMW E46s). ~$100 part.
2. fuel injectors (though I doubt they go bad that easily). ~$100/ piece. Your car has 6.
3. Ignition coils. ~$90 a piece. Your car has 6.
4. mass air flow sensor. Again, another expensive part. ~$300.

SOURCE: Replace battery in key
If you have the diamond shape key, the battery is not replacable. If you have the square shaped key, the battery is replacable, but that is obvious because of the screws on the back of the remote.if you have the diamond shape key, it is recharged when its inserted into the ignition. If the key hasn't failed, taking a long trip 60 min. or longer should recharge the battery. If there is no change in the operation of the key after your long trip, most likely the key has failed and needs replacement.

SOURCE: locked keys in 325
you will have to call a profesional locksmith who can make you a key for the door only to unlock it, i do auto lockouts for a living but we are unable to unlock them with standard tools for unlocking cars, I can pump open the door and hit the unlock switch but it will never unlock the door, the car alarm prevents this from doing so. Slim jims dont work on these also, nothing works, BMW actaullay requires us to tow them to the dealership whenever we get lockouts for BMW's. give the dealership your VIN number and they can send you another key for about $150, if you ca afford a BMW then u can afford $150 to get a new key.
