When I went to pick up my BMW 93 325i I only got one key, looking through the manual I guess I also didnt get the code for making a new key. Anyone know if the dealer can make copies from the orginal key? Thanks

how much would that cost to have them make another regular key, not the small, spare key style?

My dealer charged me $28 for a duplicate "regular" key. They didn't do the work there, rather they send the car information (VIN) back to someplace like New Jersey where they laser cut the new key. Took 4-5 days to get.

I actually don't like the key with the big head. I specifically requested the smaller master key. They charged me $31. Not bad for it being the dealership.

When i got my car i had one key a second key was $50 for the normal non-lighted key. The lighted key was $80. The dealer is expensive but i don't really trust other people with the key. I have seen a lot of cars that have a cheap key made and the key can get stuck and such after a while.

Where did your other key go? Or did you kave to take out the RFiD chip? I am sure you didn't just leave it in the ignition.

$50 for a key (for a e36... porsche keys run you around $500)!!!!!! That seems a bit steep. Wow. But I agree, I trust the dealer, not so much others.

My key did not have any electronics in it except for a light that you could press to see where you are putting it i guess. So when i got another one made it was $50 and very basic. My car is a 1994 and the newer cars may be different. A $500 porsche key i am sure has the electronics in it whereas mine does not. I think the ones with the keyless entry on the key are like $150-200.

Sorry about the other post my computer did not load up and of the "quote" areas before.
