Yeah, but the E34 didn't use the computer chip in the key, did it? (I forget the name for the system.) No doubt the dealer will do it, I'm just saying I'd expect it to cost more for an E39. Hell, the keys themselves cost close to $100, someone told me, since they have the remote built into them. I'm sure that includes dealer markup, but since they have to order them and program them for your car...
