I was hoping that someone else has encountered this problem before and new of a way to resolve this without spending over $1,000.

Again THANK YOU!!! 
Just for kicks, you might try another MINI dealer....

Hi Jcw , I would think you could hard wire it to a switch, and just skip the blue tooth. Besides it’s kinda like getting water from the fridge, with a faucet 3 feet away.

The Bluetooth remote triggers the exhaust to open up into track mode so that it gives the car more roar when you accelerate and when you decelerate allows the engine to breathe.

Cheers!!

Being a classic Mini owner, I have to ask...
What is a Bluetooth remote for the exhaust and what do you do with it?

What are my options?

Can I just purchase a new bluetooth remote and if I do how can I have it paired with the current installed system?

Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you!!!!
I don't see any other way but to visit the dealer - they should have the record of what system they installed and I would think they should be able to replace just the remote using the vin and build history....
