So I bought a blank key for my 1996 328is, called the dealership to see if they will cut it. "We can't cut it, need to send it away. Also since it’s after 1995 there is a chip in there that needs to be programmed for the ignition." I ignored his advice and called some local key shops, lucky they said they could do it, unless its steel, (which it is) and then only "God" could do it.
A) Has anyone heard about this "key" programming?
'B) Anyone know of any place in Seattle that has the hook up with "God" and can cut the key?

I just bought a 1995 BMW 325i from Copart and it does not have a key, I went to the dealer and they told me they wont make a key for me because its a salvage title, so then i went to a local LockSmith who told me that they cant make a key, because it has a chip in it. Does anyone know how I could get that car to start??

delmacro, i ddint read ur post, but if u have stickshift, try this
first of all, put ur key in the run position
push ur car at a fairly fast speed(actually have someone else do this)
clutch it, and put it in first gear, while it is still clutched
release the clutch slowly, let the engine sputter for a bit, and give it a chacne to turn on, if u give it a chance to turn on and it doesnt, then.. well, nevermind haahha
