Key Fob - Key will not stay in remote

So I officially have my first issue with my 2016 535ix - the key. Coming home tonight I went to put the house key in the door and all of a sudden the key fob separated into two pieces - the remote control portion and the physical key part. I was left holding my key ring while the two pieces of the key fob lay on the ground near the door. I don't have a large keyring - it holds two house keys, a mailbox key, a garage key, and my toolbox key. No other keychains / trinkets / etc... Has this happened to anyone before? Any solutions? Googling "Broken BMW Key" returns a slew of results, none related to what I'm seeing here. I have bad dreams of going to the dealer and having to pay $100 for a replacement key to slide in the fob, or nightmares when they tell me the key can only be ordered as part of the fob, which will need reprogramming for $600. I also don't want to have to use black tape to hold the key together on my brand new BMW - super classy!
