flip keys

so, my friends got an audi with the flip cut key, and i really like them. is there any way to get this for my car? now i know i can just go get a key cut if i buy an uncut one like the one i saw on e-bay. but im not sure if i have a security system or not. is there a way to find out? because if i do have a security system, i'd like to program this keyfob to work with my car, which im sure the delaership will have to do. thanks for the help

yes. you will need to rape a real key for the EWS transponder inside the base of the key and put it somewhere inside the flip key but you can do it.

you wont find a remote with integrated key that will be compatible with pretty much anything without bypassing the EWS entirely (whcih some people do)

but, good lukc finding one

tomctx is an unknown quantity at this point
Check to see if there is a siren under the hood of your car. Mine is located behind the headlights on the passenger side. There is also a red light on the console, beside the cigarette lighter. I believe the keyless entry was optional. Try calling a BMW dealer and giving them your VIN number. They should be able to tell you what options the car had when new.

If you have a car made after 1996 with the OBDII you can only start the car with a key that has an EWS chip. If it was made before 1996 then you don't need that chip and the flip key from ebay would work.

Garage
don't call me.
It's all over ebay.
just do a search for flip key BMW and you'll see 100s of blank flip keys on sale all over ebay.

this is the one I bought.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...RK%3AMEWN%3AIT

it was the second flip key i got and this guy sells the best quality aftermarket flips for teh E36. Whats even more cool his flips actually work with your E36 OEM BMW alarm (and some popular aftermarket) systems. So you can program the flip key to open and remote start your car.

He aslo sells alarms with the flip key as well.
