Where can I get a copy made of my key? I know that I can't just do it anywhere.

Yeah, I second that.... The dealer ordered a key for me based on the VIN.

Actually, your key will be $125. As BMW upgraded the keys to chipped keys, the cost of the key goes up. You could have another key madew elsewhere, but at best it would just unlock the door.

I didn't know e36 had chipped keys?


Any one try one of the flip keys on ebay? I've been wanting to get one, but wasn't sure if the dealer would cut it for me if I didn't get it from a BMW dealer.

Yeah I got one, it's cheap crappy, but people go nuts cause it can flip out. The dealer said they'd cut it for me, but I went to a different place cause the guy that cuts keys wasn't in that day.

I have a 96 318...and the key I have only has the little light on it, unless that is part of the chip...how would I know if it was chipped or not??? I'll check my build date, but I don't think a car built in 95 could be passed off as a 96 used

4/95. There's no indicator that I have that anti-theft system.
