I believe only service information and check control functions are stored on the key, and the key has to be in the ignition. For many with comfort access that rarely happens. I found this out taking my car for service my Service advisor read the key and nothing was on it. After a quick insertion into the ignition it was spewing out fault codes! I am sure BMW's computer would store how the car was driven just for a maintenance point of view. However getting this information from a dealer is another story. Unless you blew your engine like I have read some has already done.
