Go get from your seller... or if you bought it from a dealer, MAKE them to resolve (you don't need to care "how") without causing any damage

if they are OEM can't you take them to a dealer. They have a bunch of keys and could probably do it. They may even have a master key. I lost my wheel lock key and i took it to a shop in wilmington, DE and they got them off in 15 min. without doing any damage to my wheels.

So i guess try the dealer first then look around for a shop that can do it with out effin your wheels up. Someone can do it

Your dealer should have a kit with all the different keys for the BMW locks. I believe there are 25-30 different keys for that style.
