My guess is that static is likely to be interference from the ignition - if you have it in a shop, you might have them check wires and plugs. Bose systems (at least older ones) typically have a not-quite-line level feed from the head to the speakers, with amps and EQ cards mounted as part of the speakers.
You can refurb the plastic covers rather than replace - there is a good discussion thread on this, but it will take some searching. Try looking for "refinish headlight" and similar character strings. It involves using a commercially available headlight repair kit, then sealing afterward.
Others may help with this - I think the dealer is your only option, but I'm not sure. With standard remotes it's easy - I buy them on Ebay or the web and make sure the numbers match mine, then program the remote. Not sure you can do that with the intelligent key.
