Default Alpina Replacement Keys?

Has anyone ordered a replacement key for their Alpina? I'm guessing I can take the original BMW VIN to the dealer and I should be able to get a replacement, but I thought I'd check if anyone else has done this?

I presently have one master key and one valet key. In swapping the tumbler during a door handle replacement it became very obvious that my current master key is quite worn out, so I'd like to get a new one. Also, since it's so worn out, it doesn't work with the new door handle, but the valet key works ok.

You should be able to take the original VIN to a BMW dealer, prove your ownership and they should be able to make a key for you.

That's what I'll try and do when I put insurance on the car in the spring, but I figure the trick is going to be that I'll have to order based on the BMW VIN, but my ownership and insurance papers will have the Alpina VIN. Then, the VIN on the cowl has been scratched out by the Alpina factory, so it makes it a bit hard to read. Good news is I found a second BMW VIN located on the fuel sender cover under the rear seat.

Just wondering if anyone else has gone through the process, but I might be the guinea pig.
